On June 29, the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul, George Cardinal Pell was charged with a range of sexual offenses. The police force in Victoria, Australia, where Pell has lived most of his life as a priest, has been intimating for weeks in the local media that charges were forthcoming. The Victorian police are acting on advice from Victoria’s Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), whose office suggested that charges could be laid.
