A woman in Argentina says the pope called her Monday and told her she could receive Communion, despite being married to a divorced man, reports say. According to the woman and her husband, thepope allegedly said, “There are some priests who are more papist than the pope” — referring to the parish priest who refused to give Communion to the woman.

The Vatican initially refused to comment, but CNN received confirmation of the phone call from a Vatican press office spokesman on Wednesday. On Thursday, the Vatican released a statement responding to the media attention saying the content of the pope’s personal phone calls “cannot be confirmed as reliable, and is a source of misunderstanding and confusion.”
