1. From Radio Vaticana: Paolo Gabriele has been convicted of theft of confidential papers and sentenced to 18 months in jail. A papal pardon is possible.
2. From the Bollettino: Msgr. Charles Scicluna, the Maltese-Canadian promoter of justice responsible for several abuse investigations in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, has been named auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Malta. Msgr. Scicluna was not exactly a friend of the Traditional rites and uses of the Latin Church in his CDF work - for instance, it was said by several sources at the time that he might have been instrumental in the several attempts to block, derail, or distort the contents of what would become the Instruction Universae Ecclesiae.
