Vatican secretary of state cardinal Tarcisio Bertone attends a meeting with priests and religious at the Duomo gothic cathedral, in Milan, Italy, Saturday, June 2, 2012. Benedict's three-day trip to Milan for events focusing on the institution of the family is a welcome pastoral respite from an embarrassing and damaging leaks scandal at the Vatican that has engulfed the pontiff's personal butler. In contrast to the strains at home, the pontiff was welcomed by tens of thousands of cheering well-wishers in the square outside Milan's emblematic Cathedral earlier Friday. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno)
