Rome, May 15 - Disgraced Cardinal Keith Patrick
O'Brien, the archbishop emeritus of Edinburgh, will leave
Scotland for "a few months of spiritual renewal, prayer and
penance" after he admitted to inappropriate sexual conduct with
clergy, the Vatican said Wednesday.
"For the same reasons he decided not to participate in the
last conclave, and in agreement with the Holy Father, (he) will
be leaving Scotland for several months for the purpose of
spiritual renewal, prayer and penance," said a statement, which
did not disclose his destination.
O'Brien, 75, was forced to step down early by retired pope
Benedict XVI just days before the start of the conclave that
went on to elect Pope Francis.
"Any decision regarding future arrangements for (O'Brien)
shall be agreed with the Holy See," added the statement.
