Parish Archbishop “Puts His Mandate Back”

Paris Archbishop Michel Aupetit who hit the headlines because of an alleged affair with a woman, has put his mandate back in the hands of Francis – as if an archbishop were a mere governor of the pope.

“I handed over my office to the Pope to safeguard the diocese,” he told, stressing that he didn’t use the word “resignation.”

"I do it for the diocese, not for what I am supposed to have done in the past," he explained.
