Argentine bishop apologizes following publication of compromising photos
Catholic World News - June 21, 2012
The Argentine bishop who serves as president of Caritas in Latin America and the Caribbean has apologized following the dissemination of a compromising video and the publication of photographs in media outlets.
The video, taken last year on a Mexican beach, shows him with a woman he describes as a “childhood friend.”
Bishop Fernando María Bargalló, 57, was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Morón in 1994 and has served as Bishop of Merlo-Moreno since 1997.
“I regret that that situation, which was imprudent on my part, could lead to misinterpretations,” he said. “I sincerely ask for forgiveness if this incident has caused or could cause any harm … I have been a close friend of her family my entire life.”
