Unexpectedly, George Cardinal Pell died in Rome following complications from hip surgery. He was 81.
Phil Lawler’s January 11th’s article, “Cardinal Pell’s long shadow” is an excellent tribute to a man who served the Lord and Church with much grace and sacrifice. Pell’s witness served to build the city of God challenging the crazy ideology of anti-Catholicism which is also antagonistic toward reasonableness. Read what Lawler has to say. There are several other articles on Pell that one ought to read alongside his Prison Journals.
May His Eminence’s memory be eternal.
