FILE - In this file photo taken Wednesday, May 2, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI, right, arrives in St. Peter's square at the Vatican for a general audience as his then-butler Paolo Gabriele, bottom, and his personal secretary Georg Gaenswein sit in the car with him. The Vatican has summoned journalists for a briefing on Saturday Dec. 22, 2012, for what Italian media report is expected to be the 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.
