The news of the death of Cardinal George Pell has reached me while on a pastoral pilgrimage to Vietnam.
Our relationship today with the Church in Vietnam builds on the friendship and cooperation that the then Archbishop Pell began a quarter of a century ago.
This evening, I will offer Mass here, with fellow pilgrims from Bathurst; and pray that George will rest in peace and rise in glory.
Bishop of Bathurst
