Archbishop Spy

"The newly appointed archbishop of Warsaw, Stanislaw Wielgus, abruptly resigned Sunday at a Mass meant to celebrate his new position after admitting two days earlier that he had worked with Poland's Communist-era secret police."

At first glance I thought this was just a re-hash of the priest who acknowledged his spy activities against then Pope John Paul II. Apparently this is a new instance of a spy who came in from the cold. This accusation was confirmed by an investigatory commission established by the Catholic hierarchy in Poland (read this)

Wielgus as resigned and the Vatican has excepted his resignation.
