Topic - Justin Cardinal Rigali
Pope Benedict XVI accepted the resignation of Cardinal Justin Rigali, the archbishop of Philadelphia, on Tuesday, sending him into retirement as the archdiocese faces accusations that it covered up a long-running priest sex-abuse scandal.
A conservative American Indian archbishop was named Tuesday to lead the troubled Roman Catholic Church in Philadelphia, and he vowed to work to heal the wounds of sex-abuse victims, clergy and lay members alike.
"If I have offended anyone in any way, I am deeply sorry," he said. "I apologize for any weaknesses on my part in representing Christ and the church."
