Cardinal a veteran diplomat said that internal divisions and disputes, dubbed the scandal Vatileaks2 have generated a climate charged within the hierarchy of the Church.

"I do not think that such disputes can create a serene atmosphere. In fact, it is a heavy climate, "said the cardinal, Secretary of State of the Holy See, apart from a conference in the Vatican.

The statements of one of the pope's closest collaborators were released Wednesday by Vatican Radio.

Two books written by Italian journalists and released last week uncovered corruption cases, including for the process of beatification and canonization and describe the luxurious life of several cardinals, which apparently are reluctant to change.

The Catholic Church must "overcome resistance" admitted Parolin, who estimates there anyway "a strong desire to change for the better".

Pope Francisco undertaken since it was elected in 2013 a series of internal reforms for decentralization of the Church, based on austerity and simplicity, which generate critical and bewilderment.

On Sunday the Argentine pontiff promised to the faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square to go ahead "with serenity and determination" its reform program.

"I want to assure you that this sad fact certainly does not divert me from the work of reform we are carrying on with my colleagues and with the support of all of you," Francisco said after the Sunday Angelus, generating cheers and applause.
