via CNN:

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday he accepts the decision by the Rev. Pat Conroy, the House chaplain, to rescind his resignation, following a week’s worth of lawmakers from both parties questioning Ryan’s request that Conroy step down.

“I have accepted Father Conroy’s letter and decided that he will remain in his position as chaplain of the House,” Ryan said in a statement.
