Books: His Holiness the Secret Papers


Well finally more details on this debacle.  Seems Paoletto did this with a Computer Hacker at the Vatican for the journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi who published this in a book, “His Holiness:  The Secret Papers”.  What the article does not mention was Paoletto’s original assertion that this was for the good of his Holiness.  I guess that line has been dropped.  How much money Paoletto got the article doesn’t say…but it’s in the books, the butler did do it.  Eventually alas, this led to Pop Benedict stepping down and Pope Francis coming to power.
