Paris archbishop resigns after being accused of affair with woman 

[…] warning and later fired, while also being “reported” to the Public Prosecutor.  Clément and his collaborator, Jean Ducret, were both cleared of all accusations when the case against them was dismissed last January after a judiciary investigation.  In his latest anti-tradition move, Archbishop Aupetit published a letter in September implementing Traditionis Custodes, in which he severely reduced the number of Parisian churches where the traditional Mass can be offered from ten to five.

But we can start simply by praying the rosary.” Mawdsley appeared in the news earlier this month when he left the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) over Pope Francis’ motu proprio Traditionis Custodes, claiming that the suppression of the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) was an act of sacrilege.

Scicluna is already an adjunct […]
