Pope Expels ‘Luxury Bishop’ from Diocese / The New York Times

Pope Francis temporarily expelled a German bishop from his diocese on Wednesday (Oct. 23) because of a scandal over a 31-million-euro project to build a new residence complex, but refused calls to remove him permanently.

“The Vatican didn’t say how long Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst would spend away from the diocese of Limburg and gave no information on where he would go or what he would do. It said he was leaving pending the outcome of a church commission investigation into the expenditures and his role in the affair.” By Associated Press in The New York Times
