Pell says religious indifference challenges bishops

Sydney's Archbishop George Pell has said that specific questions of church governance that featured at the Bishops' Synod should not distract church leaders from "principal challenges"' like widespread religious indifference.

"The whole question of the interrelationship ... between the pope and the other bishops, that will continue and must continue," Archbishop George Pell of Sydney said at a Wednesday press briefing on the final days of the month-long synod at the Vatican on the bishop's ministry.

"In my book, it is something where we can do better, but it's not a major challenge like indifferentism," he said.
