VATICAN CITY (AP)–The Vatican’s spokesman said Sunday that the past actions of the Warsaw archbishop who cooperated with communist-era secret police compromised his authority and he was right to resign.

The behavior of Stanislaw Wielgus “in past years during the communist regime in Poland gravely compromised his authority,” the Rev. Federico Lombardi said in an interview with Vatican Radio.

He confirmed the comments to The Associated Press. Lombardi added that Wielgus was right to resign on Sunday, “despite his humble and moving request for forgiveness.”
