If anyone is of any doubt to the type of character George Pell is, I refer you to a book written by a parent of two abuse victims of the Catholic Church.
Hell on the Way to Heaven is a book written by Christine Foster along with her husband Anthony.
Christine and Anthony are the parents of three daughters of which the two eldest were abused by Father Kevin O'Donnell at Sacred Heart school in Oakleigh.
He had been one of these priests who had been shifted around from about the late 1940's/early 50's until about the 1980's.
The book explains the horrific impact that the abuse had had on their family's lives, the eldest committing suicide at the age of 26 after years of drug abuse and the second daughter who'd gotten drunk at a friends house as a 17yo, running out of the house into the path of an oncoming car and receiving a massive head injury of which she is severely disabled now, requiring constant care from her family.
It also goes on about their subsequent dealings with the Catholic Church, the church lawyers and Pell in their fight for compensation.
Having received an apology from Pell, in the same week they received a letter from the Church's lawyers warning them off seeking compensation.
They tell of the cold heartedness and betrayal from the church and of Pell himself in their dealings with them.
One of the saddest and most harrowing books that I've ever read. Was very difficult not to become emotional or feel utter revulsion towards the hierarchy ( and their lawyers )of the Catholic Church whilst reading it.
