CWN Editor's Note: “I was not counting on such a quick reaction, nor was I expecting the decision that I should continue in my service,” Cardinal Reinhard Marx of Munich said after Pope Francis rejected his offer of resignation. The Pope’s decision, he added, “represents a great challenge for me,” and a return “to the agenda of ‘yesterday’ cannot be the way forward, neither for me nor for the archdiocese.”
