The Diocese of Greensburg, Pennsylvania, has announced that it will sell the seven-bedroom, 9,800-square-foot mansion that served as the bishop’s residence from 1958 to 2015.
The four-acre property is valued at nearly $480,000 and requires significant maintenance, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported.

Good for Bishop Malesic. I often thought through all these past years that the bishops' residences were a scandal.

A fine example for the rest of the Church, especially the Church here in Germany, where, in 2014 the total income of the Catholic Church exceeded 5,000,000,000 euros (US$ 5,750,000,000), according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of this country's most respected newspapers (http://goo.gl/uaqaT6). The Church managed to achieve this level of income despite its ongoing loss of membership. The total German population is about 82 million.
