Expensive Residence

The bishop’s residence in Limburg, some 70 kms (42 mls) northwest of Frankfurt, taken early in the morning, Feb.19. According to media reports, bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst (dubbed the “bling bishop”) spent more than 31 million euros (42 million dollars) on renovating his official residence, causing quite some scandal, not only among catholics. The Pope suspended him in October 2013 with further investigations still underway.
