Pope Francis leaves Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki in office.

Woelki, however, has to take a "spiritual break" of several months.

"Zeit Online" reports that.

A high-ranking Roman cleric confirmed the report to the "world".

The exact wording of the papal letter is to be published by the Nuncio of the Holy See in Berlin this Friday afternoon.

It was to be expected that the Pope would keep Cardinal Woelki in office.

Last week the Holy See announced that the Archbishop of Hamburg, Stefan Heße, could also remain in office.
