Andrea Tornielli, has an interesting article on the recent arrest of Paolo Gabriele, (the Pope's butler) for suspicion of theft of confidential documents. Tornielli's thesis is, that there is a powerful force at work in Rome that is seeking to undermine the Holy Father. Conspiratorial? Melodramatic? Yes, but life also includes conspiracies and melodrama. Yet, Tornielli writes dispassionately and soberly. His expertise and contacts in Rome and within the Church cause me to take his opinion very seriously.
