Excerpt:
Health withstanding, it would be legally possible for [Pell] to remain in the Vatican, unless Pope Francis ordered him to return to Australia. Under the Catholic Church's international code of canon law, the Pope is the "supreme legislator", and is in charge of the Church, legally and spiritually, throughout the world. But there is no modern precedent for a pope ordering a cardinal to return and answer to a foreign legal jurisdiction.
