Benedictine Bling (or Pimp my Popemobile)

In case all that gold gilding didn't tip you off, here's further proof there's no vow of poverty at the Vatican: Pope Benedict just accepted the keys to BMW X5 sport utility vehicle donated by the Bavarian automaker.

Diocesan priests don't take a vow of poverty. Religious order priests do (e.g. Franciscans). So, you're right, there is no vow of poverty at the Vatican.

I realize that, but figured I could indulge a rhetorical device for (not so?) humorous effect.
