I would normally reserve this kind of post for the Sinister Ministers page, but it is far too important to be tucked away. Cardinal Pell, basically the “Holy” See’s No. 3 administrator and custodian of Vatican finances for many years, has been charged and accused of five accounts of child sexual molestation. He is now, happily for me and many others, rotting in prison with other high offending criminals who I’m sure are not too keen on having him there. Freedom is one of the most precious things a human being can possess, and now he will pay the temporal wages of his sin by having that freedom stripped away. I would even bet money that he will be laicized by Pope Francis some time soon.
Today is a good day for justice.
