Pope Benedict Pardons Ex-butler by Iaz93: 2:58pm On Dec 22, 2012
Pope Benedict XVI has pardoned his former butler, Paolo Gabriele, who is serving an 18-month jail sentence for stealing confidential papers. The pope visited Gabriele personally in the prison to inform him of the decision, the Vatican said in a statement.
In October the former butler was found guilty of stealing and copying the pope's document and leaking them to an Italian journalist. Gabriele said he acted out of love for the church.
''This morning, the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI visited Gabriele in prison in order to confirm his forgiveness, and to inform him personally of his acceptance of Mr Gabriele's request for pardon,'' the vatican statement said.

My friend do u really know ur bible. U shuld remember that d bible say no sinner shall go unpunished,even if the sins are forgiven. He is serving the punishment of his sins while been forgiven. Sentiments apart, let's always think normal.

Dont mind the creature, he doesn't know that any man who won't ask for forgiveness has automaticaly cut off himself from the unquantifiable mercy of God.

Even the Church has her own SECRETS. What other secret is there to hide than to keep the world peaceful with the deceptive propaganda on the true nature of Cosmic energy that transmutes universes replacing it with a non-existent personacy codenamed God.

We here that these documents point to corruption in the Vatican and intimate misdemeanors. Did the butler also forgive the pope? What happened to his love for the church?

Yes, the documents which were leaked included letters by a certain Cardinal addressed to the Pope with complaints of corrupt practices going on in the Vatican and the Church in general. It might interest you to also know that in the light of the Cardinal's persistent complaints, he was purportedly transferred out of Vatican City. This saga is still on-going.

As to whether Gabriel forgave the Pope, I have no idea.

Hope that answers your question?

P.s: I'm just answering based on what I know o. No vex abeg.

Dat was a gud one there. But butler shuld count himself lucky he is not frm another society or faith, he wuld hav been gistin wit his late grand parents now. Jesus is indeed LORD.

Listen to the news baby." High level corruption "and "sexxtual misconduct" and " power tussle" is what is been reported on all international media. The butler was revealing these for the love of the church. Now that the Pope has forgiven him, we need to know about his love for the church and whether he has also forgiven the Pope. This is simple and straight forward please.
