Cardinal Pell Will Stay In Rome For Longer

Cardinal George Pell returns to the Vatican on September 30, and is likely to remain there at least until June 8, when he turns 80, reports (September 29).

According to a “source close to the cardinal,” Pell has however a long-term plan to return to Australia.

The current trip to Rome is in no way linked to the sacking of his opponent, Cardinal Becciu, but has been planned for the last three months. Francis will receive Cardinal Pell in audience in due course.

Francis has been playing his favorite game, hide and seek this week, will Pell find him after both Zen and Pompeo failed?
After the disgraceful treatment he received in Australia, a pleasant stay in Italy should do him some good, even if "pleasant" means the Papal court of Francis. At least the food will be good. :D
