Orthodox church in Cyprus will mortgage assets to help bail out country
Catholic World News - March 20, 2013
The head of the Orthodox Church of Cyprus has announced that the church will mortgage its assets and invest in bonds in an effort to pave the way for an international bailout of the financially-troubled nation.
Archbishop Chrysostomos II’s announcement followed a decision by the nation’s legislature not to confiscate bank deposits.
