In these new leaked Vatican documents, it seems they are not only trying to discredit the Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone, but also for the first time, the pope's personal secretary, Georg Gaenswein.
The leaked documents reveal problems of governing the Vatican and puts a bad light on some of the Pope's closest aides.
These three new documents have been published in the Italian newspaper La Repubblica. The first one comes is a letter written last January by Cardinal Raymond Burke to the Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone.
Burke notes he was upset because he wasn't consulted on the approbation of new liturgies by the Neocatechumenal Way
on how they celebrate Mass.
The Pope then made a hand written note saying that Burke was right.
The other two documents could be a case of blackmail. These two letters were signed by the secretary of the Pope, but only displays the date and signature. The "moles" of this case are keeping the contents hidden so as "not to offend the Pope”. But they are threatening to publish, they say if "those who are truly responsible for the problems of the Vatican” aren't expelled.
