Disturbed by conclave leak

To the editor:

It is very disturbing and discouraging for us Catholics to see that the true sincerity and obedience to God and its church has been violated. How sad and insulting to us Catholics to know that one of the Princes of the Church openly violated the secrecy of the Pontifical Elections.

Each Cardinal before entering the Sistine Chapel took an oath before God, imploring the Holy Spirit that they would hold secrecy imposed upon the elections of a successor of Peter.

The Cardinal that leaked all the information related to the actual pontifical election should be immediately removed as a cardinal and excommunicated as it was one of the directives, in accordance to the election of a pope.

As a Roman Catholic, I cannot accept hypocrites that are representing our beloved Roman Catholic Church.
