Kila Mkatoliki akitoa sadaka ya shilingi 1 tu kwa siku Kanisa Katoliki litakusanya zaidi ya shilingi milioni 1200 kwa siku! Kama Kanisa Katoliki likiamua kuuza mali zake zote, dunia itatoa fedha zote ilizonazo na kuishiwa, viwanda vya kutengeneza fedha vitafanya kazi kwa miaka 3 mfululizo ili kujaribu kupata fedha zenye thamani ya utajiri wa Kanisa! Impossible to say. The Catholic church as an ancient organization, can't possibly put a price tag on some of its art, buildings, land, etc. Both are worth billions. I'm going to say the Catholic church hedges out Microsoft, simply due to sheer numbers of buildings, land, Hospitals, Schools, etc. The Catholic Church is a functioning organization that needs money to operate. She has properties, artifacts, priceless art, etc. that all come together as part of the net worth. No one knows for sure how much that is.. not even the Church itself. In order for the Catholic Church to do all the good it does, it needs money to operate. If the Church were to sell everything, the money would run out and the Church would not be able to continue all the schools, hospitals and charities it currently runs. The Catholic Church educates 2.6 million students everyday, at cost to the Church of 10 billion dollars, and a savings on the other hand to the American taxpayer of 18 billion dollars. Needless to say, that Catholic education at this time stands head and shoulders above every other form of education that we have in this country. And the cost is approximately 30% less. Catholic schools graduate 89% of students. Those graduates in turn go on to graduate studies at the rate of 92%, and all at a cost to the Catholic Church. To the rest of the America it's free. It costs Catholics at least 30% less to educate students compared to the costs that the public education system pays out for education that cannot compare. The Catholic Church thas 230 colleges and universities in the United States with an enrollment of 700,000 students. The Catholic Church has a non profit hospital system of 637 hospitals which account for hospital treatment of 1 out of every 5 people not just Catholics in the, United States today. The Catholic Church clothes and feeds and houses 1 of 5 indigents in the United States, and no one asks them if they are a Catholic, a Protestant or a Jew; just "come, be fed, here's a sweater for you and a place to sleep at night" at a cost to the Church of 2.3 billion dollars a year. The Catholic Church today has 64 million members in the United States and is the largest non-governmental agency in the country. It has 20,000 churches in this country alone. Every year they raise approximately $10 billion to help support these agencies. Na hii ni tathmini ya utajiri wa Kanisa Katoliki Marekani pekee yenye wakatoliki milioni 64 tu achilia mbali nchi nyingine zilizobaki ambazo wakatoliki kwa ujumla ni zaidi ya milioni 1200!
