Cardinal 'upset' over resignation
The BBC has been told Cardinal Keith O'Brien is "very upset" over the circumstances of his resignation.
A source within the Catholic Church also said the cardinal "doesn't know who his accusers are and doesn't know what they're accusing him of".
The ex-Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh has been accused of inappropriate behaviour towards priests in the 1980s - allegations he contests.
Cardinal O'Brien will no longer take part in the election of the new Pope.
