The Catholic Church is not a corporation. It's a religion, a cultural force, and a global power. Still, one of the things the new Pope will have to deal with is a classic business mess — a multi-billion dollar conglomerate that has stumbled and is losing money and relevance.

Music: Faithful Father's Pipe Organ Hymns, & Run DMC's "Down With The King." Find us: Twitter/ Facebook/ Spotify/Tumblr. Download the Planet Money iPhone App.
