The moves are all part of the Holy See's efforts to get on the "white list" of countries that share financial information and shed its long-held reputation as a secretive offshore tax haven whose bank has been embroiled in scandals over the years.Of course, financial scandals occur everywhere - but that's partly the point. The Vatican isn't something special. It's simply a human institution, not a divine one.
I fully recognize that even if Benedict XVI himself were to become linked to money laundering, that would not effect papal infallibility, the way that papal infallibility has been defined. Moreover, I suspect that as far as popes go, Benedict XVI is one of the more outwardly moral. I doubt he has been personally involved in money laundering. That's not the point. I say that just to be clear, because it seems that some people misread my posts when I illustrate the nature of the institution that continued to support Cardinal Law with a job until his 80th birthday.
It seems that J.P. Morgan/Chase has lost confidence in the Vatican Bank (link to story).
