Atlanta archbishop apologizes for lavish living, may sell mansion

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 04/01/2014 - 15:41

Archbishop Wilton Gregory said he took his "eye off the ball" after the archdiocese received a $15 million donation from the estate of Joseph Mitchell, a nephew "Gone With The Wind" author, Margaret Mitchell. Pope Francis has been urging Roman Catholic officials to live simpler lives and has renounced the papal apartments in the Vatican palace for modest quarters in a Church guest house. In Monday's edition of The Georgia Bulletin, the newspaper for the Atlanta archdiocese, Gregory wrote: "While my advisors and I were able to justify this project fiscally, logistically and practically, I personally failed to project the cost in terms of my own integrity and pastoral credibility with the people of God of north and central Georgia." He also said in the newspaper column that the archdiocese would begin the process of selling the mansion "if it is the will" of Church and other advisers.
