July 02, 2010
After a meeting with the Pope, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn has backed away from his criticism of the former Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Angelo Sodano. But Sandro Magister of L'Espresso sees other tensions within the College of Cardinals. Under investigation for questionable financial dealings, Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe said that his actions always had the support of Cardinal Sodano. But the current Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, has not rallied to Cardinal Sepe's defense.
