A German Catholic bishop faced pressure to resign after it emerged that his new palatial residence would cost 25 million British pounds.
The cost of the Bishop palace is over six times the original estimate.
Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, bishop of Limburg, was investigated by a Vatican envoy last month after protests in his diocese against lavish spending.
His luxurious choice of home is at odds with Pope Francis’s shift of the Church’s focus towards simplicity and poverty.

Few children learn in school about the Vatican crimes against humanity, committed prior to the Reformation in 1520 A.D.
Most of the Roman Catholic cathedrals are fruits of forced labor, unpaid slavery and extortion of the people.
The Catholic bishops literally were thief and robbers. On the island where i grew up, only one free farmer stilled owned his own land. These were the “fruits” after 300 years of Catholic tyranny in Norway. The rest of the farmland was owned by the Catholic Church, and a few tugs related to the Danish King’s tax collector.
During the Reformation the Catholic Bishop in Bergen was arrested. In Oslo the Catholic Bishop conveniently converted to Lutheranism, and escaped persecution for his crimes.
Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendour. ‘All this I will give you,’ he said, ‘if you will bow down and worship me.’
The robbery of the parishioners money seems to continue in Germany.
But who can blame the Bishop?
When the Germans had a chance to rid them selves of this evil, they rather sided with the papacy against men like Martin Luther.
And what about the Pope?
Is he not living in palaces?
There are still a chance for Roman Catholics in Germany to find peace with God. But they have to renounce this wicked religious system, that makes a mockery of the true faith in Jesus the Messiah.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
