Ousted archbishop meets with Pope in Slovakia

CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Robert Bezak, who was removed from his post by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012, met with Pope Francis this week during the Pontiff’s visit to Slovakia. The meeting triggered speculation that the Pope might reinstate the archbishop, who at the age of 61 is still far from retirement age.

In July 2012 the Vatican announced that Archbishop Bezak was relieved of his post as head of the Trnava archdiocese, which had been the subject of a Vatican investigation. No explanation of the move was given, but unconfirmed reports cited irregularities in the archdiocesan finances, and a Slovakian public prosecutor launched his own investigation.
