Cardinal Pell returning to Rome—to resume fight against corruption?

September 28, 2020

CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal George Pell is returning to Rome. The former prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy stepped down in 2017 to face sex-abuse charges in his native Australia. Having been exonerated of that complaint, he is heading back to Rome just after a key Vatican rival, Cardinal Giovanni Angelo Becciu, was removed. The cardinal’s supporters have questioned whether the charges against him were lodged to remove him from his Vatican post and thus end his probe into financial irregularities.

    Cardinal Pell's efforts to uncover corruption somehow coincided with false sex abuse charges? Man, does the Vatican ever stop? Holy Spirit, St Michael, when mercy is exhausted, can you please apply some justice? Blessed Mother protect your Son's Church on earth from those who have given themselves over to satan. Virgin Most Powerful, pray for us.
