So says The Vatican (quite reasonably I think, considering the source) in a clarification of its recent assessment of The Beatles.

The writers' perspective, which was printed on April 10 to observe the 40th anniversary of the official break-up of the band, was not intended to extend absolution “of which the four artists from Liverpool naturally did not have any need,” LOR said.

“Consonance” between the Holy See and the Beatles had already between witnessed, according to the Vatican paper, when John Lennon issued an apology in 1966 for having expressed himself in a way which may have been confusing to people.
