June 21, 2018 ( – Speaking about the dubia in his latest interview, Pope Francis told the Reuters news service that he learned about the four cardinals' questions "from the newspapers."

When they released the dubia to the public, in November 2016, the four cardinals reported that they had sent their questions to the Pontiff in a private message two months earlier, and received no response.

To put this story in context, recall that in January of this year, the Pope told reporters that as of that time he had never received complaints about Chilean Bishop Barros. But Cardinal Sean O'Malley had hand-delivered just such a complaint in 2015.

Either Pope Francis is not reading his mail, or we have a more serious problem.
