Bishop Anthony Pilla has taken the 401-§2 exit off the Cleveland expressway, according to this morning's Bulletin. Pilla was due to offer his resignation in November of 2007, but made a surprise request this past January that he be permitted to retire under the provision of the above-mentioned canon, which allows bishops to leave office before their 75th birthday "because of reluctance to lick the frozen lamp-post of a public perjury trial, or for some other grave reason." Pilla declined to give the reason for his request, according to the news account, insisting it was "between him and the Vatican."
Boston auxiliary Richard Lennon is the incoming Bishop.
