    Position and rank don't always signify that much in he church. Pell is the Pope's main guy in Australia. Just like Chaput is the main guy in US. Dolan is higher but Chaput is the go to guy. Mahoney was very senior in Us for a long time and ran the very important LA chapter. Was always virtually ignored. Not a boy that JP or Benny ever warmed up to.

    In the early history of Australia the church was both powerful and patronizing to a populace largely disenfranchised, uneducated and searching to find a way and a coherent identity. I don't think the people of Australia are too enthused about the "teaching authority" of the church. They will always have a soft spot for the nuns and missionary fathers that helped them when things were hard and they were in bondage.

    I don't think they mistake Pell and Pope Benny for the nuns and missionary fathers of the past. The people of Towoomba were very happy with their "Bishop Bill", who had led them for a generation. Look what the chirch did to poor Bill. Tsk Tsk.
