CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Luc Ravel of Strasbourg has dismissed his vicar general, Bishop Christian Katz, reportedly on charges that the auxiliary bishop did not respond properly to sex-abuse complaints.

Archbishop Ravel himself has been the target of an investigation for the same cause. An apostolic visitation of the archdiocese, assessing his leadership, has not yet delivered its report.

Bishop Kratz told La Croix that he had been notified of his dismissal with a note slipped under his door.
