Once Papabile Cardinal George Pell Reportedly Convicted Of Sex Abuse In Australia.
As the NPR article points out there is an Australian court gag order preventing details of this HUGE case from being divulged at present.
But, it appears that he has been convicted — though he has already appealed it. Hence, the secrecy.
If the conviction holds this will be pivotal. This is NOT about cover-up. This is about actual, hands-on sexual abuse.
Once a papabile (i.e., a pope contender).
Confidante of Pope Francis.
This will be HUGE.
