Today is the 13th March.
The day that Bergoglio came to the throne of St Peter.
That was a sad day, and today is a sad day.
It is the day that our very dear Cardinal George Pell, after being convicted of a crime of which he is innocent, – at a trial in which there was no substantiating evidence of the crime, at a trial on which was placed a gag order for the media, at a trial in which the accuser ‘s evidence was private, at a trial which made a mockery of Australia’s justice system – was sentenced for his supposed crimes.
An Archbishop in this country “told a congregation on the first Sunday after the convictions were made public that they should withhold judgment on Pell until the appeal. If we are too quick to judge, we can end up joining the demonizers or the apologists, those baying for blood or those in denial ”
“Pell was found guilty beyond reasonable doubt on the uncorroborated evidence of one witness, without forensic evidence, a pattern of behavior or a confession,” veteran crime reporter John Silvester wrote in Melbourne’s The Age newspaper.
“Pell has become a lightning rod on the worldwide storm of anger at a systemic cover-up of priestly abuses. But that doesn’t make him a child molester,” Silvester added.

According to a report by SBS News, the prayer day at the Nazareth House Chapel in Camberwell has been cancelled after a flyer advertising the event was shared on social media.
The hate frenzy that has been lashed up by the media makes no sense. It is palpable and scary. Many high-ranking people and well known journalists have risked their reputation and standing to vouch for him.

With regards to the attempt for the prayer service (as described above) for Cardinal Pell, there is nothing stopping us from requesting Masses from our own local priests to be said for Cardinal Pell, or gathering a group of people – perhaps quietly though: “ “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves” (Matthew 10:16)
The media frenzy is so bad that one Tv channel had Live coverage of the sentencing. The news papers had been promoting the fact that he could get 50 years – 10 years for each charge.
Some Journalists have described the trial as a ‘witch-hunt’, and described Cardinal Pell as a ‘scapegoat’ and as a ‘lamb to the slaughter’.
There was Another Who was hated and treated cruelly because He spoke the Truth; Who had false accusations made against Him. He was One Whom the crowd at that time too, had been whipped up into a hate frenzy and turned against Him – a crowd who called for His death; and Who was treated like a criminal; Who chose a murderer to be set free above Him; One Who had committed no crime.
There was also another case against a bishop in another state – he too was found guilty of covering up, but on appeal was found innocent. In the meantime, the pope had forced him to resign. He has not been re-instated. And there are other cases round the world.
As it turns out, the sentence was not as harsh as many wished.
- George Pell has been sentenced to six years’ jail, with a non-parole period of three years and eight months.
- Even though, his appeal has not been heard, he was forced to sign the sex offenders register.
- He can apply for parole in October 2022.
Regardless though, his character has been tarnished and he has been “demonised” as referred to by Jesus in a prophecy by Jesus in April 2014:
“…, how My Heart is breaking because of the plight of My sacred servants and the difficult trials which they will have to face because of My enemies. My most esteemed Bishop will be the subject of a terrible miscarriage of Justice. Then, when he has been demonized, many of My sacred servants will be taken to task, should they dare to utter grievances against the new laws, which are not of Me and which they will have to witness being introduced into My Churches.” (Book of Truth April 10, 2014 @ 5:22pm).
This prophecy will be totally fulfilled when the new laws will be introduced into the churches as a result of this court case.
Today, the appeal will be commenced. Please pray that God finds him a good and brave lawyer to present the appeal, and that good judges sit on the appeal panel.
The Cardinal Pell case is important to us all. In times of persecution, we need martyrs. Cardinal Pell is no doubt a martyr – not a blood martyr but a ‘white’ martyr. His demeanour – his inner peace, and dignity – stand out throughout it all.
Let’s not stop praying for him during the next few months. We can make many spiritual bouquets for him to offer to our Heavenly father, and encourage others – in our prayer groups, in our local parishes, our families and friends – to do likewise.
And let’s not forget to ask our Blessed Mother Queen of the Clergy, Cardinal Pell’s Guardian Angel, and St Michael to protect him during his time in gaol.
