Vatican spokesman denies rumors in ‘Vatileaks’ scandal

Catholic World News - May 30, 2012

The director of the Holy See Press Office has denied reports that additional arrests have been made in the “Vatileaks” scandal and that cardinals are under investigation.

“It is a great test for the Pope and the Roman Curia which we hope can be overcome with decision, by identifying the truth and the problems,” Father Federico Lombardi said at a May 29 briefing. “This is the right path to follow to maintain the trust of the People of God, which the Pope fully merits.”

“Both the Pope and his collaborators in the Roman Curia are facing the situation with faith and a great desire to serve the Church,” he added. “We are not frightened by the problems, difficulties, errors or faults that may emerge. Instead we are trying to react in a correct manner as part of a sometimes difficult journey of truth, with necessary interventions, to reestablish trust and the proper function of the government of the Church and its institutions.”
