Rome, March 5 - Cardinal Sean O'Malley of Boston
said in Rome Tuesday he expected that important information on
the Vatican leaks dossier would be shared with cardinals before
electing a new pope.
"I assume that important information will be shared that
will help us make our decisions," said the Boston archbishop
speaking at the Pontifical North American College outside the
Vatican.
O'Malley, who some have tipped as a candidate for pope, is
in Rome ahead of the upcoming conclave to elect a successor to
Benedict XVI, who stepped down on February 28.
Some have speculated that one of Benedict's motives for
abdicating was the so-called Vatileaks scandal that erupted last
year when his butler was arrested then eventually pardoned for
leaking secret Church documents that spoke of corruption to the
media.
Benedict subsequently commissioned a report on the affair,
but the results have been sealed away for the eyes of the next
pope only, the Vatican says.
But there has been talk among cardinals of the possibility
of sharing some of its contents ahead of the conclave.
"I think the cardinals feel confident we will get all that
we need," said O'Malley Friday.
