Cardinal Pell Ruling Deferred, Supporters Hopeful

“The takeaway from today’s hearing is that Pell’s prospects of succeeding in the appeal are good"


Praying God’s will for Cardinal Pell.

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless, and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible,
look kindly upon us, and increase your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments, we might not despair nor become despondent,
but with great confidence, submit ourselves to your holy will,
which is love and Mercy itself.


It is obvious that the evidence is so thin and the case so badly conducted that the appeal can only fail for political reasons.

Pell is hated in Australia for his conservatism. Had he been less forthright in defending Catholic orthodoxy this case would never have made it to trial.

Praying for justice to be done. And frankly, I think they had insufficient evidence and an unfair trial.
