Pope’s ex-butler starts prison term
VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI’s former butler started his 18-month prison sentence Thursday in a Vatican City cell for the theft of papal correspondence.
A statement from the Vatican secretary of state’s office left open the possibility of a papal pardon if Paolo Gabriele repents and asks the pope for forgiveness.
The statement Thursday said the deadline to appeal the Oct. 6 conviction by a Vatican tribunal had elapsed.
It described as “mild and fair” the punishment given to Gabriele, who used to serve Benedict his meals and help him get ready for ceremonies.
It noted that Benedict, as sovereign head, has the power to pardon.
Dismissing suspicions of a plot, the Vatican said Gabriele acted alone in pilfering the documents and giving them to an Italian journalist, who published them.
