Australian Cardinal George Pell is dead. Pell, who was 81, died in Rome, Archbishop of Sydney Anthony Fisher said on Wednesday night on his Facebook page.

The Archdiocese confirmed the authenticity of the message to the German Press Agency. For years, Pell, as finance chief under Pope Francis, was number three in the Vatican and the highest-ranking minister in the history of the Catholic Church to be convicted of child molestation.
