Vatican and Wealth

Quote taken from FoxNews article entitled: Vatican Adds Seven New Deadly Sins Including Abortion, Contraception and Drug-Dealing

It's not the blessing or position of wealth that's sinful, but other things associated with wealth that can be sinful such as an inordinate desire for wealth, unrighteous attitudes and behavior to attain, keep, or hoard wealth; unrighteous management or use of wealth, etc. However, simply to possess a great deal of wealth is not sinful in itself.
