CWN Editor's Note: In Catholic World Report, Christopher Altieri explores the presumption that a prelate caught up in scandal—such as Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta in Argentina—should be removed and quietly given a new post in Rome. One Vatican source argues, regarding the Zanchetta affair, “The Pope acted as he should have acted at the time. He saw that there was a man who was not suitable for ministry but who wasn’t a criminal, and took him to Rome.”
