Bishops Call for Purification after Nuncio Scandal
September 7, 2013
Santo Domingo.– The bishops have voiced support for the investigation launched into accusations of sexual misconduct against the former nuncio to the Dominican Republic, Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski.
The bishops called for a "purification of the Church and for the removal of those who unworthily exercise this ministry and do not deserve to be called priests," in a letter signed by Cardinal Nicolas Lopez Rodriguez of Santo Domingo and president of the Dominican bishops' conference.
Archbishop Wesolowski resigned from his post Aug. 21 in the wake of accusations of sexual misconduct that were reported in the media.
