Archbishop Stanislaw Wielgus To Resign?

According to the BBC, Polish media is reporting that the installation of Stanislaw Wielgus may not go ahead.

Polish and Vatican officials held talks overnight on the fate of Stanislaw Wielgus, at the centre of communist-era spying row, the reports said.

. . . The BBC's Adam Easton in Warsaw says preparations are still taking place for a service at 1000 GMT, but that the installation ceremony may be replaced by a Mass of thanksgiving for the archbishop's predecessor, Jozef Glemp. Commentators say a decision to stop the installation at this late stage would be unprecedented.

. . . In one survey, two-thirds of people asked, said Archbishop Wielgus should resign. His admission came after a Church commission acknowledged he had collaborated with the communist secret police.

What a mess. Personally, if he didn't hurt anyone and regrets working in conjunction with communist spy's then he's ok to be the archbishop. Especially if Pope Benedict XVI had full knowledge prior to his appointment.
