2014-09-25

Pope Francis has suspended the Bishop of the Paraguayan city of Ciudad del Este, Msgr. Rogelio Livieres Plano. 

A written statement issued by the Vatican's press office, states that 'following a careful examination of the conclusions drawn following the apostolic visits...Holy Father has decided to substitute Bishop Rogelio Livieres Plano. 

In July, Cardinal Santos Abril y Castello along with the auxiliary Bishop of Montevideo, Msgr. Milton Troccoli, visited Paraguay to undergo an  investigation on behalf of the Pope. 

The statement also says that it was a difficult decision on the part of the Holy See, taken for serious pastoral reasons and for the greater good of the unity of the Church in that city and the Episcopal Conference of Paraguay. It calls on the Church of that country to 'embark on a serious process of reconciliation to overcome any form of sectarianism or discord.'
