Vatican City, March 4 - Cardinal Oscar Andres
Rodriguez Maradiaga of Honduras said Monday transparency was
needed in the next papacy and that Benedict XVI's "clean-up"
initiatives must go forward.
"I am convinced that the clean-up initiatives of (former
Cardinal Joseph) Ratzinger had to continue because it is written
in the Gospels that the truth shall set you free," said
Maradiaga, whom many have signalled as a possible candidate for
pope. "We must present a Church with a transparent face, one
that is at peace and at ease".
Maradiaga was speaking outside the first general
congregation of cardinals ahead of the conclave to elect a new
pope.
Benedict became the first pope to resign in 600 years on
Thursday.
Leading up to his abdication, Benedict had commissioned a
300-page, two-volume report on the so-called Vatileaks scandal,
in which his own butler was arrested then pardoned for leaking
secret Church documents of alleged corruption to the Italian
press.
Unsourced reports in Italian media in recent weeks have
said that the report's findings were a final straw for Benedict
to step down.
