CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal George Pell has been convicted of sexual abuse, according to an unconfirmed report from Australia. Cardinal Pell has been undergoing a trial in secret, with press coverage barred, and the Australian media have not reported the result. According to the Daily Beast, an original trial resulted in a hung jury in September; in a new trial, concluded this week, the jury deliberated for three days before delivering a guilty verdict.

    Call me naive but I never would have suspected Crd Pell. I guess it's true, you don't know what you don't know. Still praying for a cleansing of the temple.
