Pell was ordered to appear on July 18 at court in Melbourne for a preliminary hearing on multiple sexual assault charges related to offences allegedly committed decades ago, when he was a senior cleric in his homeland. Pope Francis granted Pell a leave of absence, making it clear the cardinal would not be forced to resign his post as head of the Vatican's powerful economic ministry.
