Congregation of the Doctrine for the Faith Issues Statement on Official’s Resignation

‘He affirms that the accusation made against him is untrue, and asks that the canonical process already initiated continue’

On January 28, 2019, Fr. Hermann Geissler submitted his resignation from office to the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. The Prefect granted his request. Fr. Geissler decided to take this step to limit the damage already done to the Congregation and to his Community. He affirms that the accusation made against him is untrue, and asks that the canonical process already initiated continue. He also reserves the right for possible civil legal action.
