Media reports bishop of bling on €10k a month

The diocese of Limburg has been reviewing the pension it pays its former bishop, Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst - bishop of bling - diocesan spokesman Stephen Schnelle said without commenting on media reports that Tebartz-van Elst received the sum of €7,000  a month from Limburg in addition to his monthly Vatican salary of about €3,000. "The pension agreement provides for an adjustment if a new salary is paid. The diocese is also discussing this with the Vatican," he said.
Tebartz-van Elst, a strict conservative cleric who was fined for lying under oath about another scandal concerning a first-class flight he took to India, was able to spend so much money without supervision because he took most of it from a special unreported fund that many German bishops have at their disposal.
What are the salaries and pensions of bishops, archbishops and cardinals?
