true battle between good and evil. the book is titled merchants in the temple where they say the pope's men are lined up on one side while on the other are his enemies, the defends of the status quo. pope francis set up a special commission to examine the vatican's fine angs sancefinances. he talks about how ooech eveeven the most sacred rituals are tainted by muby. a market place in which millions of dollars change hands. the vatican's response have been two fold, first, attacking him
3:26 am
pope's trust and two on the commission, one commission. they were accused of leaking information, including actual recordings of the pope's in private meetings. >> the fact that these arrests have come so close to the release of the books sort of indicates that we should see francis as very much aligned with everyone else in the church but the actual revolutions themselves only promote him as someone who has been trying to change the atmosphere and culture at the vatican. there are other allegations that alleged corruption was one thf main reasons pope benedict resigned. the other about peter's pence, $400,000 sent in by churches to help the poor and instead went to vatican office expenses. churches offering $11,000

-- into a life altering accident. living in colorado, the shooting where the killing happened affected me and the community as a whole. the fingerprints are encrypted and the next main step for me is to take that technology and move the to an actual metal life firearm. throughout the course of my research into accidental shootings and deaths in the united states, i learned that every 30 minutes in the united states on average, a child dies or is injured by firearm. technology like this can legitimately save thousands of lives every year in the united states. and i'm in a position to make that possible.
