Bergoglio won't talk

Vatican, Oct. 13 ( - The Argentine cardinal who was reportedly the main challenger to Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger in the April papal election does not want to comment on leaked reports from the conclave.

"I am still confused and a bit hurt" by the published reports about the papal election, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio told the Italian daily L'Indipendente. "I don't want to talk about these indiscretions."

Good for Cardinal Bergoglio. As Magister summed up in his article on the leak, ask five different cardinals and they'll give you five different versions of what happened. Bergoglio is not only wise to honor his vow of secrecy, but it's also good to not descend into playing the guessing game of what happened.
