College of Cardinals imposes media silence after breach

The College of Cardinals has decided that its members will no longer speak to journalists after several cardinals gave too much information to Italian press.

“Concern was expressed in the general congregation about leaks of confidential proceedings reported in Italian newspapers,” said Sister Mary Ann Walsh, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ media director.

“As a precaution, the cardinals have agreed not to do interviews,” she added in her March 6 statement to journalists who were hoping to attend a press conference with Cardinals Francis George and Theodore McCarrick.

The American cardinals have been the only ones to organize press conferences during the general congregation phase of the Sede Vacante period.
