OnePeterFive claims that Cardinal Wuerl is paid a couple of million dollars (US) annually for his Retirement Ministry.
Having given Much Prayerful Thought to the question, I have decided that my own Retirement Ministry is inadequately recompensed (currently £0,000,000 annually).
I shall be invoicing the Ordinary for an appropriate sum, probably as much as ten times that amount.
I had thought of adding "If you want me to keep shtumm about A and B and C, you'd betta pay up prompt". But, sadly, I can't think of an A, let alone a B or a C. I must be alphabetically challenged.
Dull little man. Me, I mean, not the Eminent Wuerl.
But it is Lovely to think that I am now in Full Communion with such vast sums of ready cash, and with such rich Retirement Ministries.
P.S. Why do so many cardinals keep e-mailing me with the message "Nighty night, Baby, I love you"?
