As some of you may be aware, Cardinal Pell has been found guilty of sexually abusing two choir-boys.
Article from the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation or Abnormally Biased against Catholics): https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-02-26/george-pell-guilty-child-sexual-abuse-court-trial/10837564?fbclid=IwAR2Sfvr5d_TwzEQa2chsB2zQeaLY88SlejmDWab3al93EhcjKGAT-z4tcu8
Some of my thoughts are: The time-frame doesn’t work out, did all the priests con-celebrating the Mass decide to keep their vestments on for a change?
Did the servers decide that the sacred vessels just looked too nice to be put away?
How were two choir-boys able to slip unnoticed from the procession, get into the priests sacristy (where they neither were allowed nor had previously been), locate the altar wine, have a couple of swigs, and be found and abused by the Archb. all within “5-6 minutes”?
How long had that procession gone before they realised that the Archb. had vanished? After realising he was gone did they just say “Eh, once more around won’t hurt?”
Any thoughts? Please be respectful (I.E., Cdl. Pell cannot have been unaware of the abuses committed by the priest with whom he shared a presbytery, so he must be guilty of either incompetence or collusion, but to be guilty of this case of abuse requires a stretching of one’s imagination well beyond reasonable bound (forming facts to suit theories).)
