CARDINAL PELL FOUND GUILTY OF CHILD ABUSE

NEW YORK – In a decision that will undoubtedly create shockwaves around the globe, Cardinal George Pell, the most senior Church official to stand trial for sexual abuse, was found guilty on Tuesday by a Melbourne Court.
In one of the most closely watched trials in modern Catholic Church history, after nearly four full days of deliberations, a jury rendered unanimous guilty verdicts on five charges related to the abuse of two choirboys in 1996.
The trial, which began on November 7, has been subject to a media blackout at the request of the prosecution, and follows a first trial in September ended after a jury failed to reach consensus.
Pell, who is 77 years old, is currently on a leave of absence from his post as the Vatican’s Secretary for the Economy.
In June 2017, Pell was charged by Australian police with “historical sexual assault offences,” forcing him to leave Rome and return home vowing to “clear his name.”
This past May, after a four-week committal hearing, an Australian magistrate struck down some of the more serious charges against Pell but ruled he stand trial on five charges related to sexual abuse of minors. The allegations, however, are from two separate periods, the 1970s and the 1990s, hence Judge Sue Pullen’s decision in May to mandate two different trials.
The focus of the first trial centered on the alleged sexual assault of two choirboys at Melbourne’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral during the late 1990s.
During the four weeks of testimony, the jury of twelve heard from the former Master of Ceremonies of the cathedral, its former organist, and other choirboys during the same period of the alleged incident.
Much of the testimony centered on whether or not it would have been possible for Pell to have been alone with the members of the choir and whether it would have been physically possible for Pell to engage in such actions while wearing his mass vestments.
Jury deliberations for the case began late last week, and continued through Tuesday.
Pell has been a key point of reference in English-speaking Catholicism for at least the last two decades, and he was appointed by Pope Francis to his “C9” council of cardinal advisers from around the world in 2013. On Wednesday, the Vatican announced that at the end of October, Pope Francis had removed Pell, along with two other cardinals, from his council of advisers.
He served as the Archbishop of Melbourne from 1996 to 2001, then as the Archbishop of Sydney from 2001 until his appointment to his Vatican position in 2014.
Following the May ruling, Vatican spokesman Greg Burke released a statement saying that “The Holy See has taken note of the decision issued by judicial authorities in Australia” regarding Pell.
“Last year, the Holy Father granted Cardinal Pell a leave of absence so he could defend himself from the accusations. The leave of absence is still in place,” Burke said.
Despite the Vatican’s position in May, Pell’s term of office ends in August and it’s unclear what happens next.
Vatican spokesman Greg Burke told reporters on Wednesday that “The Holy See has the utmost respect for the Australian courts.”
“We are aware there is a suppression order in place and we respect that order,” he said.
Earlier this year, the Australian Catholic Church unveiled its official response to Australia’s Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, the nation’s highest form of inquiry.
The Royal Commission revealed last year that 7 percent of Catholic priests were accused of sexually abusing children in Australia over the past several decades, and in response, the Church accepted 98 percent of its 80 recommendations, deciding only against the recommendation that the Church eliminate the seal of the confessional.
The Pell verdict and the Church’s response to the Royal Commission comes at a time in which the global Catholic Church is struggling to combat the issue of clerical sexual abuse.
In August, Francis penned a letter to the “People of God” in which he apologized for widespread cover-up and failures, and in February, he has called the presidents of every bishops’ conference around the world for a global summit on the issue.
During the release of the Australian Church’s response to the Royal Commission, president of the Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference, Archbishop Mark Coleridge, vowed systematic reform throughout the country.
“Our response in Australia gives local shape to the action required to address such failure and the need for cultural change,” he wrote.
A sentencing date for Pell has been set for February 2019. Judge Peter Kidd said Pell will be taken into custody on that date, however an appeal by his defense team is likely.

PAT SAYS:

From the very first moment that I watched the televised interviews of Pell’s male victims I was convinced that they were telling the truth and Pell was guilty.

They described the then Father Pell hanging around the town swimming pool all day, fondling their privates under the water and standing naked in front of them in the male changing room.

As they spoke their voices and bodies trembled and they wept. I knew that they were not lying.

One of them is now dead – and never lived to see justice being done.

Not only did George Pell sexually abused them – but for decades he called them liars and therefore submitted them to decades of personal, mental, social and sexual suffering.

He must now be punished by a long jail sentence.

pope Francis must also now immediately dismiss him from the college of cardinals – and dismiss him from the clerical state.

He must now spend the rest of his life as Mr Pell and Prisoner Number 8764.

  1. This is bad news. I don’t know what Pell has done. But, a jury has found him guilty. I doubt if ordinary decent people would do so if they were not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt. So, let’s forget the conspiracy anti catholic bias theories. In law Pell is guilty. And that is such a let down. Where we, and Francis, and the Church in Australia, go from here I do not know. I’m sad, outraged, angry, ashamed, revolted, repulsed….. but mostly, just so sad. For the victims, for us…..for Pell, who according to this judgement, has let himself and us, the Church, down so badly. He will appeal, I know. He might then be found not guilty. But, there is something not right about him and his past. Whether it is criminal or not, so far we are told it is. But, he is damaged. As are all of us. God help us all !

The 3rd highest ranking member of the rc institution is a convicted paedophile. Most Catholics that I know are disgusted. See him for what he is. A CONVICTED piece of scum. The lowest of the low and that he would try and hide behind the robes of his church makes it worse. He abused his position. He abused trust and worst of all he abused children. He has brought shame to himself, his church and heartache and hurt to children. There can be no moral defence of this lowlife. There is no place in society for child abusers, regardless of whether they pretend to be christians or not. Show trial in an anti catholic country? More like a fair trial in a country trying to protect its children. I hope he receives a very long sentence so that those he abused can get some sort of justice. Their pain will live with them until the day that they die. Show trial my arse. What kind of sicko would even come off with that statement. But we’ve heard it before from all the enablers who turn a blind eye to this type of abuse by clerics. Get it into your head. He’s a convicted scumbag abuser of little children. What do you need before you accept this? Psychological, emotional and physical abuse of children (and adults) has gone on for far too long by RC clerics. They don’t need moved from parish to parish. They need exposed, stopped and punished. Scumbags

  16. In an article by Nancy Flory at The Stream, the entire affair is characterized as a “witch hunt” designed to destroy Pell’s reputation:

    “Pell can never receive a fair trial,” writes The Australian columnist Angela Shanahan. She is describing the “media witch-hunt” that has dogged Cardinal George Pell for two years. New and vague charges — of “historic sexual offenses” — were filed against Cardinal Pell. Cardinal Pell has repeatedly denied allegations of sexual abuse leveled against him. Still, the media in Australia have repeated claims about the Cardinal’s guilt. They’ve printed leaked information about the investigation against Pell, and claimed that charges were “imminent.” And hostile book on Cardinal Pell (Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of George Pell) came out.

    A few brave souls have challenged the Cardinal’s trial-by-media-innuendo. Amanda Vanstone, columnist for The Sydney Morning Herald and “no fan of organized religion,” decries the media’s hysteria over Cardinal Pell. “What we are seeing is no better than a lynch mob from the dark ages … [it] is far worse than a simple assessment of guilt. The public arena is being used to trash a reputation and probably prevent a fair trial,” wrote Vanstone. “Isn’t it normal to try to ensure a person can get a fair trial,” she asks, “by keeping prejudicial, untested material out of the public arena?”

    1. No 6:40, neither Pell nor any other Catholic bishop “seek to try and tell us how to live our lives”. As if the teachings of the Catholic Church came from within themselves. That’s actually the heresy of “Modernism”, or “Immanentism”, by which man, not God, becomes the rule and measure of truth and morality.

      If you consider yourself a true follower of Christ, you must follow the Christ-given teachings of the Apostles, who transmit the genuine Faith, and to whom Christ said: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you”. (Matt 28: 19 – 20 RSV).

      You see, the overarching agenda in all this Church bashing perpetrated by Buckley and the atheistic, pagan Irish media is an attempt to justify a society which is now, in the main, ruled by its passions and appetites; and has, as a consequence, a visceral hatred for the Natural Law and Christian morality.

      Such societies are doomed to self-destruct.

      Good luck to you with having the great solipsistic “prophet”, Bishop Buckley, as your moral guide. For you will surely need it.

      God is currently sending his purifying fire through His Church; and I am very glad that all the filth is being exposed to the light. A more humble, poorer and purer Church will be the end result. Praise God!

      Always remember that Christ chose Judas (one of the first bishops) with perfect foreknowledge that he would betray Him. Such are the mysteries of God.

      And always remember that each and every one of us will have to give a public account for every infraction of the Divine Law at the Final Judgment: “For nothing is hid that shall not be made manifest, nor anything secret that shall not be known and come to light”. (Luke 8: 17 RSV).

  27. As a priest I feel a great shame and disgust at the ongoing revelations of sexual abuse committed by members of the clergy, particularly by any senior prelate. It is a deeper sense of shame and disgust each time new evidence appears. I cannot conclusively prove any wrongdoing by anyone, but I accept the findings of the Australian court system. Any abuse on a child or a vulnerable person is criminal, evil and reprehensible. Whatever about my feelings (I’ll have to deal with those), whatever abiut the damage done to an already broken church, whatever about the declarations of innocence by perpetrators, my only prayer is for all victims/survivors. I hope they find some inner healing and strength for their lives. I can only try to renew my life in whatever way possible.

You’d have to wonder about the clerical culture that permits these caliber of individuals reaching practically the top of the ladder. You’d also have to wonder how many more Cardinals have caca in their closets or have covered up others clerical caca.

    1. I suspect they followed the manual to the letter. It was not a failure of the system that caused the abuse.It was the system that said these things had to be covered up. They were like the Nazis merely following orders. They is how they got promoted. A safe pair of hands.

  31. @8:43;
    You’re not the only one wounded by the abuse of power in the Church Bp. Pat. Most of these lay cheerleaders haven’t a clue what goes on in the institution and because this blog illustrates what goes on, to some extent, the clergy/ hierarchy want to shut you up. Typical!
    The appalling comments directed at you by some contributors, many of whom are clerics no doubt, are anything but Christian or Christ like.
    Is it any wonder the Rc institution is imploding!

      Oh! really Patsy, so you don’t publish my comments but you publish the troll Magna’s constant insults to my person, witch I have the right to answer. I am not surprised because you both have the same agenda hatred of Our Holy Mother The Church, however I will always defend her from bitter Apostates .

  32. Darcy is being driven mad by juvenile delinquents and corner boys making mischief in the grounds of the Passionist house in Crossgar. They even burned down two trees a couple of weeks ago. Darcy was raging.

  33. Darcy is hardly ever in Crosshar to notice. Too busy galavanting in the Mercedes down round Fermanagh and beyond. The big end remains unfixed but he was spotted down round a carry bridge garage the other day.

  35. Here in the wonderful land of Oz we have a total media blackout when it comes to Cardinal George Pell. We have to reply on the Washington Post and Bishop Pat’s blog to discover what is happening Pell’s criminal trial.
    It does however raise as very important point about the nature of the response. Secrecy is the essence of these violent sex crimes. The state has in its desire to ensure a fair trial colluded with this sickness that is at the heart of this scandal.
    In a digital age the state will have to seriously reconsider its options when imposing a media blackout on such a subject
