Bishop caught cavorting with woman [resigns]
June 27, 2012
THE Vatican has accepted the resignation of an Argentine bishop who was caught cavorting with a woman on a beach.
Bishop Fernando Bargallo, 57, was forced to hand in his resignation after photographs emerged this month showing him frolicking and embracing a blonde, bikini-clad woman at a luxury resort in Mexico.
Bishop Bargallo, who led the diocese of Merlo-Moreno outside Buenos Aires since May 1997, has reportedly admitted to having “amorous ties” with the woman he is seen embracing in the water, thought to be a divorced restaurant owner.
He had initially claimed she was just a longtime friend.
