Still not ready to jump on the Pell bandwagon

Back in 2017  and  in 2019, I wrote about Cardinal Pell, the accusations against him and obliquely, one of his defenders. I believe he was innocent of what he was wrongly convicted of but it does not follow that he's a saint or a traditionalist or that he acted appropriately when the stories of child sexual abuse in his diocese reached his desk. We also have to realize that there has been talk about Cardinal Pell for years. It may be all filthy Freemasonic lies,  and Australia may be a horrible place, but please don't act like this has all just popped up overnight. There are men and families who were and remain broken-hearted. Boys were used for sex. People lost their Faith. It went on for decades. Cardinal Pell says he knew nothing about it. I'm glad hes's out of prison but please, don't be ridiculous by comparing him to Cardinal Mindszenty,  Fr. Ciszek or the Apostle Paul in prison.

Oh Mary, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us.  Arise Oh Lord, and let Thy enemies be scattered. Let them that hate Thee, flee before Thy holy face.
