    You can look at this charming old building and know for sure that so many children will never more enjoy the lovely atmosphere of a school life, nor carry the nice school memories such a lovely place is able to load them with for a whole lifetime.

    But my heart bleeds mostly for the Vatican. The poor institution that was upholding the school since its inception toufrit el yom and may need all our prayers and financial contributions to survive these tough times. I hereby donate half my teaching salary to them poor monks in Rome.

    Skunky needs to understand thread topic, else skunky will sound like a duck, quacking over the cuckoos nest.
    The poor catholic church just stopped financing the school, that's why they are closing it down. Ma fi masareh, ma 3am betwaffeh ma3oun.
    And here comes my half salary in handy: in 50 years my donations will make them afford to reopen, not only that old school, but also twenty new five stars casinos.

    If all churches in the world sold their treasuries, they would solve world poverty.
    But no, they need their gold goblets and jewel-encrusted crosses in order to pray for the hungry.

    With all due respect, but only idiots go to church.

    If the Saudi Petrol was distributed in an fair way there would not be a single poor man in the middle east... Same goes to everywhere, yes Muslims dont buy gold or they hide it but they use their money on other things like sabaya etc....

    With all due respect, this is one of the most idiotic arguments against the Church.

    If the Church sold all their valuables and art, they would end up mostly in private collections, where the common people would no longer have access to them...and, all that for nothing, because poverty would still not be over. Poverty is the result of many factors, collective and individual, and one entity going broke won't even put a dent in the problem.

    Many instances of the church of today do many good things for the poor, sick and needy; but we, the supreme humanist philosophers, we keep asking for more, simply because the needs are more, and the more compassion and good deeds are needed.

    But in this particular case, even if they had to pay for them for another century, no way the salaries of the teaching staff in this school would have broken the financial back of their sponsor in the Vatican.
    Therefore I suspect the real reason behind this move, and which the ma soeur is not telling, is a factual acute shortage of students.
    Perhaps there are not enough christian families with children in the area anymore, plus the fact that the muslim majority in the neighborhood is not willing anymore to send its children to a nun run / non-muslim school.

    ba3den what's your evidence about only idiots go to church? I see a lot more go elsewhere.

    I didn't even watch the video and that's the first thing that crossed my mind when I saw the thread. I didn't say so in my post because it seemed so obvious that I assumed it was said in the video.

    World poverty will never be solved nor will hunger or access to clean water.

    These are millenia old recurring problems that are systemic to human nature and society as a whole. The church is not responsible to feed you, the state is not respondible to feed you, you are respondible to feed yourself and any offspring you might conceive.

    The era of handovers is soon coming to an abrupt end as growing populations and slowing world economies, are stressing access to fresh water to a critical point.
    ie. if u hav a piece of land with a well, its gonna be worth millions to ur grand children and feed them and their families
