VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis on Sunday condemned the recent leak of sensitive Vatican documents but said it would not distract him from forging ahead with reforms at the Holy See.

Speaking to tens of thousands of people in St. Peter Square, he asked them not to be disturbed by the leaks.

"I also want to tell you that this sad fact will certainly not distract me from the work of reform that is moving ahead with the help of my aides and the support of all of you," he said.
