Pope sacks two top Slovenian clerics

Pope Francis on Wednesday sacked Slovenia’s two top Catholic clerics over a financial scandal that has reportedly left one archdiocese with a budget shortfall of 800 million euros.
The Vatican said in a statement the pope had ‘accepted the resignations’ of Archbishops of Ljubljana Anton Stres and Maribor Marjan Turnsek.
Tiny Slovenia only has two Catholic archdioceses. Both are leaving under canon law rules for a bishop ‘who because of illness or some other grave reason has become unsuited for the fulfilment of his office’.
