George Pell found guilty


Australian cardinal George Pell, Vatican treasurer and the third most senior Catholic in the world, was found guilty of child sexual abuse last December. It took a secular court, years of time, and a suppression order lapsing yesterday to finally hear about it.

This won’t heal wounds, and closure is overrated Hollywood fantasy. But it’s a relief to finally see justice done.
