France. French media accuses the clergyman of having a relationship with a woman

Last week, the French daily Le Croix revealed that Michel Aupetit was to have a relationship with a woman in 2012, a few months before receiving his episcopal nomination. The Hierarchy denied these accusations, although admitted that they were “ambivalent relationships”.

– Those who knew me at the time and shared my daily life with me can certainly testify that I did not live a double life, as the article suggests.

French media write about another blow for the Catholic Church in France, for which the bishop of Paris was one of the most important figures. A few weeks ago, the public was shocked by the publication of a report showing the scale of sexual abuse of minors in the French church.
