Better Late than Never Dept.

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Mar 06, 2007

Just about 10 years after the Bishop of Dallas agreed to step down quietly in the aftermath of a horrendous sex-abuse scandal,...

...and 7 years after the Vatican appointed a coadjutor to succeed him,...

...and 4 years after the coadjutor-- tired of waiting, frustrated by his isolation--- requested and received a transfer to a diocese where he could actually do something,...

... and 7 months after the bishop finally submitted his resignation, as required by canon law, upon reaching his 75th birthday,....

The Pope has accepted the resignation of Bishop Charles Grahmann.

Which just goes to show: a bishop can't resist pressure from the Vatican forever. For a decade, maybe. But not forever.
