Cardinal Pell defends the Pope...

Some positive moves on responses to the abuse crisis:
  • on the Archdiocese of Sydney website, Cardinal Pell speaks on video with a strong defence of the Pope, an acknowledgement of the serious nature of the problem, and an excellent commentary on the atheist attack.  Good stuff - let's hope more of his colleagues follow suit;
  • the Canberra-Goulburn website highlights a novena for the Pope (starting 15 May) organised by the Knights of the Southern Cross;
  • in the UK, the bishops of England and Wales have issued a statement on the crisis, and issued a call to public penance and prayer.
