Jason Berry discusses his new book, Render Unto Rome: The Secret Life of Money in the Catholic Church.
Jason Berry's new book, Render Unto Rome, looks at the financial structure of the Catholic Church from the parish level to the Vatican. What happens when a Catholic puts money in the collection plate? What kind of financial reports are offered by diocesan leaders? How big of a problem is embezzlement? Berry, a longtime investigative journalist who first broke the story of the sexual abuse scandal, discusses these issues as well as the recent efforts to sell church property in Boston. He also provides an eye-opening account of the scandal involving the Italian businessman Raffaello Follieri and his ties to Vatican officials.
