Last quote by George Pell

They were very, very, very plausible allegations made by responsible people that were not followed up sufficiently. he believed the faults were personal rather than structural failings. Unfortunately, original sin is alive and well. There's tendency to evil in the Catholic Church too and sometimes it's better, sometimes it's worse but for good or for ill the Church follows the patterns of the societies in which it lives.feedback
