From The Hill:
A senior Vatican official has resigned after a former nun accused him of making sexual advances during confession, The Associated Pressreported Tuesday.
The Vatican said the Rev. Hermann Geissler has denied allegations made by Doris Wagner and noted that he has the right to file a civil suit. Geissler said he was resigning “to limit the damage already done” to the Vatican, but noted he wants an investigation to be conducted into the woman’s allegations.
