Index – Abroad – The Archbishop of Paris resigned because of a love letter sent to the wrong address

His resignation was submitted by the Archbishop of Paris, Michel Aupetit, which had already been accepted by Pope Francis. The archbishop made this decision because in recent days a scandal has erupted over her “intimate relationship” with a woman.

The French magazine Le Point first wrote about it on November 22. This is revealed by the fact that in 2012, Aupetit accidentally sent a love letter to the woman to her secretary. This email was somehow obtained by Le Point.

The archbishop did not deny the authenticity of the speech, but said that something had happened between him and the woman in practice.

Those who knew me at the time and participated in their daily lives can attest that I did not live a double life, as the article claims

Michel told Aupetit in an interview with Radio Notre Dame on November 27. He added that he acknowledged that he had made a mistake and that he had also reported this to the acknowledged and church authorities.

The archbishop eventually decided to resign due to the scandal. In his statement, he apologized to anyone who might have offended. Pope Francis accepted his resignation and appointed Georges Pontier as his successor in the office of the Archbishop of Paris.
