Vatican journalists: leaks obscure real progress in Vatican management

Catholic World News - February 16, 2012

Sandro Magister, the veteran Vatican-watching reporter for L’Espresso, has often been critical of Vatican management, and has given ample attention to the criticism of Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Secretary of State. Yet in his response to the latest round of leaked documents, Magister makes an argument very similar to that of the Vatican press office.

By dwelling on stories of conspiracies and internal power struggles, Magister says, Italian journalists are missing some of the important developments within the Vatican. The real story, he says, includes plenty of good news, including reform of financial affairs and management practices. The Vatican bureaucracy is becoming more efficient in doing what Pope Benedict wants done, he says.
