An honourable man (letter)


by Brendan Rowswell

News Weekly, September 7, 2002
Sir,

I commend Archbishop Pell for the brave and selfless decision he has made to stand down during the investigation of allegations made against him.

For the past seven years, he has been at the forefront of the Church's actions against those involved in the evil of sexual abuse. The Archbishop was the first in Australia to establish an independent commission into this issue. He has constantly publicly condemned those involved in this great sin.

Let it be known that Australian Catholics lend their prayers and support to Archbishop Pell at this time. We are certain of his credibility and certain of his innocence.

Brendan Rowswell

the thinker in the family.
