    Pope Francis has engaged EY (formerly Ernst and Young) to assist in the evaluation and restructuring of Vatican Finances. And in the United States, the National Roundtable on Church Management has taken up this theme as well. The proceedings of the Vincentian Conference are available here, and the National Church Roundtable has assembled a free e-book. Isn’t it time we all accepted co-responsibility?
