    Cardinal Pell and his former roommate, ex-priest Gerald Ridsdale, convicted of abuse, are a reminder of Jesuit Fr. Thomas Smolich, former president of the US Jesuit Conference and Fr. Angel Crisostomo Mariano.

    When Fr. Angel Mariano was sued in civil court for abusing a mentally disabled man, Fr. Thomas Smolich denied knowing much about Mariano, despite the fact that, at that point, Fr. Smolich had been roommates with Mariano for 2-years.
