Belgium’s Longest-Serving Bishop Quits

The longest-serving bishop in Belgium quit on Friday after he admitted to sexually abusing “a young man in my close entourage.” The Bishop Roger Vangheluwe, 73, said it happened “when I was still a simple priest and for a while when I began as a bishop.” Vangheluwe said the wound had not healed for the victim or himself and said, “I am enormously sorry.”
