The archdiocese of New York has just announced that Msgr. Clark's resignation as Rector of St. Patrick's Cathedral has been accepted.
The statement reads as follows:
“His Eminence, Edward Cardinal Egan, has today accepted Monsignor Eugene Clark’s resignation from his position as Rector of the Cathedral of Saint Patrick. Although Monsignor Clark continues to deny the allegations against him, he offered his resignation for the good of Saint Patrick’s and the Archdiocese. He will not be celebrating Mass or the sacraments publicly until this matter has been resolved.”
He won't be celebrating the sacraments publicly? Smells like some kind of a suspension.... I'm not saying it is, but that's what it seems.
Looks like there's no double standard after all. Wow, that piece got heard quickly.
