Head of German bishops' conference meets with Pope; Limburg diocese on the agenda?
Catholic World News - October 17, 2013
Archbishop Robert Zollitsch, the president of the German bishops’ conference, has met with Pope Francis to discuss the controversy surrounding spending in the Limburg diocese, Deutsche Welle reports.
Limburg’s Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, who has been heavily criticized for spending on his residence and a diocesan office building, is also in Rome, reportedly to confer with the Pontiff.
The Vatican has not released any official comment on the troubles in the Limburg diocese or on the Pope’s meetings with the German prelates.
