Vatileaks Story May involve more than just the Pope’s Butler

With the news over the weekend that the Pope’s personal butler had been arrested for allegedly stealing confidential Vatican documents, rumors began to swirl that perhaps there’s much more to the story than a wayward personal valet of the Pope. After all, most media outlets including Catholic media have noted that such a deception would have had to have involved “higher ups” that had an intimate knowledge of church politics and governance. Some have wondered publicly if the theft has something to do with the beleaguered Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone who’s been linked to the sexual abuse scandal involving deceased Legionaires of Christ founder Marcial Maciel. Some of the documents found in the butler’s residence involved the Legionaires and has led to speculation that the Vatileaks scandal has ties to money and sex abuse. Time will tell.
