The new regulations require exterl auditing of the Vatican bank accounts created for canonization as well as regular budgeting and accounting to make sure that hundreds of thousands dollars of dotions for saintly dotions are being used correctly. The reforms also create discipliry procedures in cases of misuse of the funds for each saintly cause, which the two blockbuster books estimate bring in around $550,000 each. The books by two Italian jourlists are based on confidential Vatican documents. (IANS)
