New York Times “Cardinal Angelo Sodano, celebrating the Mass on Tuesday preceding the conclave to elect the next pope, issued an appeal for unity in the Roman Catholic Church, which has been damaged by Vatican corruption and clerical sexual abuse scandals.”

The Guardian “But even as preparations for the mass were being made, Cardinal Angelo Scola, the archbishop of Milan – and reportedly the hot favourite to be the next pope – suffered a blow.”
