Sylvia Poggioli on the Vatican

NPR's Sylvia Poggioli, a guest on the show today, has a "Morning Edition" piece about the ongoing pressure on the Vatican to answer various allegations relating to priest sexual abuse scandals. Poggioli reports on the "significant departure from tradition" at yesterday's Easter Sunday Mass, during which the dean of the College of Cardinals defended Pope Benedict from what he called "petty gossip." Take a listen. And hear Sylvia again on On Point.
