Paolo Gabriele has been charged with stealing secret documents from the Vatican. Paolo is the Pope’s butler which means that he MUST be the criminal and I don’t need Sherlock Holmes to help me uncover this thief. Mr.Gabriele admits to taking the documents, but claims he simply took them in order to help the Pope learn about what was going on since many Vatican officials hit information from their superior. One can only assume the butler also knew of corruption in high offices.
So, what does one do with a whistle blower who admits to stealing documents. He did what anyone in that situation would do-steal the documents and then turn them over to the Pope. Unfortunately, Mr. Gabriele did not turn over this evidence which leads to the conclusion that he is either lying or really does have concern for the Pope.
The story is living proof that the Butler Committed The Crime!

Pope Benedict is a good man, an honest man, but apparently some who surround him simply use the Church as a piggy bank to make money. Paolo Gabriele, a 46 year old butler who works in the Vatican believes there are at least 20 other men like him seeking to expose graft and corruption in the Vatican. “The people, who like me, want to help bring some transparency number at least 20.” The Vatican denies that others are also under investigation for stealing papers.
Mr.Gabriele’s lawyer admits he stole papers, but argues it was done out of love for the Pope. Gabriele argues the gap between Vatican hawks and reformers has widened. He also fears for his life claiming one can get killed and “no one can say what happened.”
The Catholic Church is too important for it to continue ignoring reality of life in the 21st century. There are over 80 million Catholics in America and only a handful of priests and nuns being prepared to serve their needs.
