Archbishop Pell Named Cardinal

"The Catholic Archbishop of Sydney George Pell is one of 31 new cardinals appointed by Pope John Paul II". Archbishop Pell has not only been one of the most insistently orthodox prelates in the church, what is even rarer, he has not been afraid to act on his beliefs. Of interest to those of us who prefer the ancient Roman liturgical rites, he has been a good friend to the traditional Gregorian Mass and liturgies. Thanks in no small part to Archbishop Pell the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter has a solid foundation in Australia.
