A fake bishop actually made it into a secret meeting of cardinals in the Vatican. Before doing so he posed for pictures with one of them. He was eventually discovered by Swiss guards who noticed his attire was less than appropriate. Per the article:

 

Ralph Napierski, dressed in fake ecclesiastical robes with a purple scarf  tied  around his waist, shook hands and chatted with archbishops and cardinals  as  they arrived. The imposter dodged Vatican security measures and sneaked into the  closed-door  conference. But Swiss Guards soon frogmarched him out after noticing his suspiciously  short cassock and unusual crucifix...Before he was rumbled, the fake holy man said Catholic bishops had made a  mistake by moving priests accused of paedophilia around different parishes...The Catholic Church continues to be rocked by scandals inside and out of the  Vatican – including the resignation of Britain’s Cardinal Keith O'Brien, who  yesterday admitted that his sexual conduct had “fallen below the standards  expected of me as a priest, archbishop and cardinal”.
