The Pope accepted the resignation of the Archbishop of Paris

“The Holy Father accepted the resignation (..) presented by Bishop Michel Aupetit and at the same time appointed Bishop Georges Pontier apostolic administrator” of the Archdiocese of Paris, the Vatican said.

At the end of November, Bishop Aupetit handed in his resignation to the Pope after being accused in the press of having had an intimate relationship with a woman, which he categorically denied.
