FILE - In this Tuesday, July 6, 2010 file photo, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone celebrates a mass to mark the 50th anniversary of his ministry, in St. Peter's Basilica, at the Vatican. The "Vatileaks" scandal has seriously embarrassed the Vatican at a time during which it is trying to show the world financial community that it has turned a page and shed its reputation as a scandal plagued tax haven. Vatican documents leaked to the press in recent months have undermined that effort, alleging corruption in Vatican finance as well as internal bickering over the Holy See's efforts to show more transparency in its financial operations. But perhaps most critically, the leaks have seemed aimed at one main goal: to discredit Pope Benedict XVI's No. 2, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican secretary of state.
