POPE DISMISSES TWO CARDINALS
Two cardinals allegedly linked to sexual abuse have been dismissed from Pope Francis’s inner circle.
Australian Cardinal George Pell and Chilean Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz have been removed from the so-called C9 Council of Cardinals, the Vatican said Wednesday. Pell, 77, has taken a leave of absence to fight claims of historic sexual misconduct in Australia. Errazuriz has been accused of covering up allegations against abusive priests in Chile.
