Pope Francis has indefinitely suspended Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-
van Elst of Diocese of Limburg,known as “The Bling Bishop” after
controversies surrounding his lifestyle .

This came after the 53 year old
Bishop spent a whooping $42m on a luxury residence & reportedly
dropped $15,000 on his bathtub alone.
The quarters includes a museum, conference halls, a chapel and
private apartments,The project was approved by his predecessor and
was initially valued at an estimated $7.5 million, but the final bill rose
to $42 million, including a $1 million garden.Last year over 4,000
signed an open letter criticising him for using Church offering to fund
his luxury lifestyle..
He is also accused of giving false statements in court about an
expensive Ist class flight he took to India to visit poor communities.
Pope Francis decided to have him step-down pending the conclusion
of investigations.The Vatican didn’t say how long he would spend
away from the diocese of Limburg but it refused calls to remove him
permanently
