West Virginia bishop says predecessor’s apology inadequate
September 25, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Mark Brennan of Wheeling-Charleston, West Virginia has said that a public apology from his predecessor, Bishop Michael Bransfield, was “self-serving and lacking in any recognition of, or contrition for, having actually offended people.” Bishop Bransfield—who was directed to apologize and make restitution after a Vatican inquiry found him guilty of financial and sexual misconduct—replied that he did not want to “do battle” with Bishop Brennan.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
