Gianfranco Ghirlanda, the Rector of the Pontifical Gregorian University, has apologized to Samuele Bacchiocchi, a Seventh-day Adventist alumnus of that institution, following defamatory statements made by the General Secretary, Barbara Bergami. Details in his latest newsletter (scroll down). More details forthcoming.
I would like to express my gratitude to Rector Ghirlanda for taking time to examine my response and rectify some of the false allegations. Though some allegations still remain unresolved, in the spirit of Christian forgiveness I consider the case closed.
Stephen Korsman and Jared Olar, who carried forward an investigation of Bacchiocchi over this issue, have apologized on Stephen’s blog, and offered prayers for his health. A good ending all around.
