In 2008, The Pope's chief astronomer José Funes says intelligent beings created could exist in outer space. Just as there are multiple forms of life on earth, so there could exist intelligent beings in outer space. And some aliens could even be free from original sin, he speculates.
In 2009, Lachezar Filipov, deputy director of the Space Research Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences said that even the seat of the Catholic church, the Vatican, had agreed that aliens existed.
In 2010, The Pope's astronomer, Guy Consolmagno, said intelligent aliens may be living among the stars and are likely to have souls.
The late prelate of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples Corrado Balducci, a theologian of the Roman Curia and a good friend of the pope perhaps most clearly spoke out about the existence of extraterrestrials.

Balducci has said repeatedly that extraterrestrial contact is real and that there are aliens among us.
Based on interviews with Catholic researchers and scientists who were willing to speak about the Prophecy of the Popes and the possibility of extraterrestrial life, researchers Tom Horn and Cris Putnam spokes about an 'extraterrestrial' connection between Peter the Roman, the Vatican and the Mount Graham International Observatory in Arizona .
Their findings published in The Vatican's Astonishing Plan for the Arrival of an Alien Savior were far more disturbing than they expected to find. It would mean that Francis is the last pope.
Furthermore, Documents revealed by the FBI on April 8, 2011 referring to the (Secret) Vatican-Alien connection.
Does the Pope know about the truth about aliens is not anymore a question after all the revelations, it is clear that the Vatican has evidence of the existence of extraterrestrial life.
