Cardinal Pell received a Catholic funeral attended by 30 bishops, hundreds of priests, the opposition leader and a former prime minister. But he was denied a state funeral by the Labour authorities even though that’s the norm for important public figures. Apparently it would be too destressing for victims according to premier of Victoria Daniel Andrews. Even though Pell has been cleared of false accusations off abuse and of claims that his Melbourne response did not report abusers when it in fact did. It seems especially hypocritical since Andrews has so far still not made an apology to victims of abuse in Victoria’s state schools despite a motion requestion that. And now hundreds of cases have come forward regarding historic abuse in these schools and it is said to be only the tip of the ice-berg. Yet the Royal Commission singled out the Catholic Church while brushing over this secular school abuse.[

Benedict’s funeral was just two days ago. Now in a week a book by his secretary Gänswein will be published which reveals criticisms of Benedict on stances and ambiguities off Francis as well as Francis rather mean-spirited or cold conduct towards Benedict and Gänswein. This just after it had already been revealed that Benedict had supported Traditionalist communities after Francis’ crackdown on the Tridentine Mass. With Benedict buried the truth is being dug up.
