A Belgium Bishop resigned Friday after admitting that he sexually abused a young man that he worked with many years ago.
Robert Vangheluwe, 73, has been the Bishop of Burges since 1984, but that all came to an end when he stepped down from his position. The Bishop admitted to sexaully abusing an associate of his, while he was a Priest, according to The New York Times.
"This has marked the victim forever. The wound does not heal. Neither in me nor the victim, " Vangheluwe said, according to the BBC.
On many occasions he had asked the victim's family for forgiveness, but that was not good enough for the wound to heal, according to The New York Times.
This week has seen many resignations of prominent Catholic Church clergy. Most of the resignations have been over things other than sexual abuse, according to the BBC.
