How does it benefit the Vatican?

OK, let's say the Catholic Church benefits from the conflict - how?

One thing that is being pushed is a one world govt/currency by the Catholic Church. Could one say allowing conflict is a way of breaking down the system and then centralizing it? I don't know...

Note on financial reform from the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace:

"In the same spirit of Pacem in Terris, Benedict XVI himself expressed the need to create a world political authority. This seems obvious if we consider the fact that the agenda of questions to be dealt with globally is becoming ever longer. Think, for example, of peace and security; disarmament and arms control; promotion and protection of fundamental human rights; management of the economy and development policies; management of the migratory flows and food security, and protection of the environment.
