The mighty have fallen
The trial, conviction — subject to appeal and imprisonment of Cardinal George Pell for child sex offences shows that no one is above the law of the land. Divine law and justice will be delivered by the God he believes in eventually, so it is likely to be a journey downstairs.
There are a number of priests, bishops and other clergy who have been accused, and less often convicted, of child crimes but now one of the highest has fallen.
They have taken a journey through life that precluded some parts of normal life and, if they believe in this journey, then they need to stick on the path. Probably an easier solution would be to allow them to marry but that doesn’t look likely to occur at the moment.
There are many dangers in the modern world, but we shouldn’t fear those who protect us, teach us and guide us in life. Let’s work for a better world.
