CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Bishop Eduardo MarĂ­a Taussig, 67, of San Rafael, Argentina.

In 2020, the Vatican ordered the closure of Bishop Taussig’s diocesan seminary, one of the largest in Latin America, after the rector and other staff members resisted the bishop’s directive to distribute Communion only in the hand.
