CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis has named Bishop Pascal Delannoy of Saint-Denis, France, as the new archbishop of Strasbourg.

Last May, Pope Francis accepted the resignation of Archbishop Luc Ravel, 66, of Strasbourg. The French archbishop, accused of having an autocratic management style, had tendered his resignation at the Vatican’s request following an apostolic visitation, but defended his tenure.

Then, earlier this month, Pope Francis accepted the resignation of 51-year-old Auxiliary Bishop Gilles Reithinger, MEP. The prelate, who was formerly superior general of the Society of Paris Foreign Missions, had been accused of failing to address abuse allegations.
