"There won't be a particular or complex structure. Father Sapienza says it won't even last longer that usual. He thinks it will be done by midday.”

During the conference, Lombardi also rebuked several reports from Italian media he described as sensationalist and without any merit.

"We will not go after all the assumptions, fantasies or opinions regarding these topics. So do not expect any comments, or confirmation on particular points because then we will never finish.”

Lombardi said that he will not fall into habits of confirming or denying everything, but instead to report on what is really happening.
