FILE - In this photo taken Wednesday, May, 23, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI, flanked by his private secretary Georg Gaenswein, top left, and his butler Paolo Gabiele, bottom left, arrives at St. Peter's square at the Vatican for a general audience. The Vatican tribunal that convicted the pope's ex-butler of stealing private papal correspondence has sharply condemned the theft as harming the pope, the Holy See and the entire Catholic Church. The three-judge tribunal issued its written explanation Tuesday Oct. 23, 2012 of how it reached its Oct. 6 ruling against Paolo Gabriele, who was convicted of aggravated theft and sentenced to 18 months, currently being served under house arrest. Gabriele confessed to photocopying papal documents and giving them to an Italian journalist to expose the "evil and corruption" around him, in the biggest Vatican security breach in modern times.
