CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Bishop Andrezej Dzuiba of Lowicz, who was charged with negligence for failing to relay sex-abuse complaints to local public officials.

The bishop—who at 73 was short of the normal retirement age of 75—had transferred a priest from one parish to another to shield him from abuse charges. The priest has since been convicted of criminal offenses and sentenced to a three-year prison term.
