    I have been trying to ifditney Paolo Gabriele’s exact title as Butler. Obviously, he is not officially called the Butler .I’ve read that he is the Papal Chamberlain. There are 3 such fellows: the Camerlengo of the Holy Roman Church, the Camerlengo of the Sacred College of Cardinals, and the Camerlengo of the Roman Clergy. I’m not sure which one – if any – of the above is Gabrielle’s rank. Anyway, I’m sure most people aren’t consciously aware that the Vatican (as a country), has its own military (the Swiss Guards), its own police, at its own courts. The Vatican is not merely an absolute monarchy governing a city. Gabrielle will be tried and is incarcerated in the Vatican – the world’s smallest country.Al BloomfieldOcala, Florida USA

    I have consulted The Oracle (i.e. the-search-engine-who-shall-not-be-named) and found that you are indeed correct.
    The use of the word ‘butler’ to describe such a position within the Vatican has a demeaning air about it.
    Be that as it may, we might remind you not to be so smart in the future, lest you draw undesired attention. Just saying…
