"I think it doesn't reflect well on the individuals involved. I think that, you know, we ought to have a certain reservation, withhold judgement until we learn all the facts, and particularly in the case that might have legal consequences, there may be a trial, there may be criminal charges. We shouldn't rush to judgement, but certainly you could hear jaws dropping all across the city."

Italians gathered at St. Peter's Basilica as a member of the board of the Vatican Bank expressed his opinions over the case of the Pope's butler, Paolo Gabriele, who is under arrest at the Vatican, accused of leaking secret Vatican documents to the press.
The Vatican confirmed on Saturday that the pope's butler has been arrested in its embarrassing leaks scandal, adding a Hollywood twist to a sordid tale of power struggles, intrigue and corruption in the highest levels of Catholic Church governance.
Maria, from Milan stated that this scandal should have been anticipated, "because the church is too rich, handles too much money, there are too many interests behind it."
However, Carl Anderson, an American member of the board the Vatican bank, expressed his concerns at the on-going events at the Vatican and urged the public not to jump to conclusions.
"Well, it is really incredible. If you wrote this in fiction, you wouldn't believe it. No editor would let you put it in a novel. So, it is something I find very unbelievable," he added.
Anderson is head of the Knights of Columbus, a major US Catholic organisation.
Paolo Gabriele, a layman and member of the papal household, was arrested on Wednesday after secret documents were found in his Vatican City apartment and was continuing to be held on Saturday, Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said in a statement.
Gabriele is often seen by Pope Benedict XVI's side in public, riding in the front seat of his open-air jeep during Wednesday general audiences or shielding the pontiff from the rain.
He has been the pope's personal butler since 2006, one of the few members of the small papal household that also includes the pontiff's private secretaries and four consecrated women who care for the papal apartment.
His arrest followed another stunning development at the Vatican this week, the ouster of the president of the Vatican bank, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, by his board. Sources close to the investigation said he, too, was found to have leaked documents, though the official reason for his ouster was that he simply failed to do his job.
The "Vatileaks" scandal has seriously embarrassed the Vatican at a time during which it is trying to show the world financial community that it has turned a page and shed its reputation as a scandal plagued tax haven.
Vatican documents leaked to the press in recent months have undermined that effort, alleging corruption in Vatican finance as well as internal bickering over efforts to show more transparency in its financial operations.
But perhaps most critically, the leaks have seemed aimed at one main goal: to discredit Pope Benedict XVI's No. 2, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican secretary of state.
The scandal took on even greater weight last week with the publication of "His Holiness," a book which reproduced confidential letters and memos to and from Benedict and his personal secretary. The Vatican called the book "criminal" and vowed to take legal action against the author, publisher, and whoever leaked the documents.
Gabriele is believed to have met with his two lawyers and that the Vatican judicial system was taking its investigative course. He hasn't been indicted.
The Vatican has taken the leaks very seriously, with Benedict appointing a commission of cardinals to investigate. Vatican gendarmes as well as prosecutors are also investigating the sources of the leaks.
