FILE - In this file photo taken Wednesday, May, 23, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI butler Paolo Gabiele sits in the car with the pontiff, not seen, as he arrives in St. Peter's square at the Vatican for a general audience. The Vatican has summoned journalists for a briefing on Saturday Dec. 22, 2012, for what Italian media report is expected to be an announcement of a pardon for the former butler, Gabiele, who was convicted in October 2012 of aggravated theft after steeling the pontiff's personal papers and leaking them to the media in a bid to expose the "evil and corruption" in the Catholic Church.
