Maybe I just didn't follow this story closely enough. I need someone to explain why it was such a big deal. I see references to it now in news articles as a major scandal and devastating to Pope Benedict's papacy. Was it really? Most of the leaks, as I recall, seemed to be typical Curial bickering. Lots of people don't like Cardinal Bertone. Is that really news?

I see how having the butler leaking gossip is bad and embarrassing. Did anything come out of it that was actually significant though?
