Pope accepts Bishop Gumbleton’s resignation


Pope Benedict accepted the resignation from the office of auxiliary of the archdiocese of Detroit, U.S.A., presented by Thomas J. Gumbleton, upon having reached the age limit.

This annoucement comes following a controversial open letter Gumbleton wrote to his parishioners at St. Leo’s Church, that was distributed this Sunday, January 29th, in which he annouced his resignation was already accepted by Pope Benedict.
