Pope visits his former butler in prison and grants pardon

According the Vatican, the pardon “constitutes a paternal gesture towards a person with whom the Pope shared a relationship of daily familiarity for many years”. ; ;

The butler has been released from prison and has returned home. ;

The Holy See Press Office said that "since he cannot resume his previous occupation or continue to live in Vatican City, the Holy See, trusting in his sincere repentance, wishes to offer him the possibility of returning to a serene family life”.
