In this April 12, 2013 photo, Clelia Luro sits in her home in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Luro's romance with the former bishop of Avellaneda, Jeronimo Podesta and eventual marriage became a major scandal in the 1960s. Luro and Podesta felt ostracized from the Church for many years, but she says then Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio didn't hesitate to minister to them when Podesta was hospitalized before his death in 2000. They became such good friends thereafter that Luro said Bergoglio called her every Sunday for 12 years, and often discussed the celibacy issue as they debated all sorts of hot topics in private conversations.
