Bishop Janiak punished by the Vatican
Let us remind you that Bishop Edward Janiak has recently become famous due to the decision made by the Holy See, which punished him for negligence in cases of sexual abuse committed by some clergy against minors.
Together with Archbishop Sławoj Leszek Głodzie they received an order to live outside their dioceses and a ban on participating in religious celebrations in their area. They were also obliged to donate an appropriate amount to the St. Joseph.
