"Vati-leaks" continued

May 28, 2012
Over recent months private, internal Vatican documents have been leaked to Italian media. The various documents reveal that even within the Holy See not everyone agrees on how things are done and by whom. That disagreement is not always handled in the best possible way.  The May 23 arrest of the Pope's personal butler, after private papal documents were found in his apartment, shocked Vatican watchers and showed a sad side of life in any organization. One thing is clear: the whole document leaking affair and the party or parties behind it have absolutely nothing to do with heart of the Church, the Gospel.  Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB recorded the reflection in the above video while he was in Rome in February, when the first of the private Vatican documents was leaked to the press. He reflects on the fact that in over 2000 years the church has seen many plots and intrigues, but none can sink the boat of St. Peter.
