Munich Cardinal Reinhard Marx wants to remain in office as Archbishop of Munich and Freising, although he was accused of misconduct in a report on dealing with cases of abuse a week ago.

Munich – Munich Cardinal Reinhard Marx wants to remain in office as Archbishop of Munich and Freising, although he was accused of misconduct in a report on dealing with cases of abuse a week ago. “I’m not sticking to my office,” said Marx at a press conference in Munich on Thursday. His offer to resign from office last year was meant very seriously. Pope Francis decided otherwise and asked him to continue his ministry. “I am willing to continue doing my job if that helps with the further steps that need to be taken to ensure a more reliable work-up, even more attention to those affected and to reform the church,” said Marx.

A report presented a week ago accused Marx and former Munich archbishops of misconduct in dealing with cases of child sexual abuse. (dpa)
