    Edward Pentin’s talk at the Catholic Identity Conference 2017 Posted on 4 November 2017 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf Edward Pentin – at present the best English language Vaticanista in Rome – gave a talk at a conference. There is a video of his talk.You might give it a shot. Pentin, a sharp and reasonable guy, touches on a lot of sore points.We have to stop blowing happy gas all around, as if everything in the Church was great. It’s not great. Some things are great, but a lot of really important thing aren’t good at all. Before we can get to...

    I am reading Edward Pentin's book, "The Rigging of a Vatican Synod? I would not have put the question period. I've only just started it but you must buy this book. This excerpt is chilling and reveals the evil men and weak men as betrayers of Our Lord Jesus Christ. On Friday, October 3, two days before the opening of the synod, this scholar received a call directly from Cardinal Erdö to come and meet him the next day. “I said: ‘Sure, when would you like me to come, maybe 4 or 5 P.M.’ ”, reported the scholar, thinking he...

    Anyone who wants to understand what we are likely facing next needs to read this book as soon as possible. I hope I am not too late to recommend Edward Pentin’s detailed and balanced book, “The Rigging of a Vatican Synod: An Investigation of Alleged Manipulation at the Extraordinary Synod on the Family,” because anyone who wants to understand what we are likely facing next needs to read it as soon as possible. I am writing this on the 14th of September. This leaves us just under three weeks before the opening of the second half of the Synod on...

    A new book, The Rigging of a Vatican Synod?: An Investigation into Alleged Manipulation at the Extraordinary Synod on the Family, will shed much light on allegations that the Extraordinary Synod, held in Rome last October, was subject to manipulation. The book has been written by highly respected Vatican journalist Edward Pentin and carries the endorsement of Wilfrid Fox Cardinal Napier, Archbishop of Durban. Cardinal Napier is one of the fifteen members of the permanent council of cardinals and bishops overseeing the Synod of Bishops, he attended the Extraordinary Synod and was a member of the committee that drafted the...
  • What If Pentin Hadn't Taped the Interview?

    Just a quick question. As we all know now, Cardinal Kasper gave an interview which Ed Pentin of the Register and Zenit reported on in which he denigrated the African bishops. When the outrage ensued, he denied ever giving the interview and said he'd never said any of those things. Pentin, however, taped the interview. But here's my question. If he hadn't, Pentin's career would've been harmed. Possibly irreparably. Would Cardinal Kasper have admitted to the interview or simply watched another man's life be possibly destroyed? There's no answer. But perhaps we have our answer in that Cdl. Kasper is...

    In 1974, a Trabant -- an old East German car -- was chugging through the Thuringian countryside, a province in the communist German Democratic Republic.In its passenger seat sat Professor Joseph Ratzinger and at the wheel was Father Joachim Wanke, then an assistant at a local seminary -- the only one in the GDR.The two priests, writes Rainer Erice, a journalist for the German radio station Mitteldeutsche Rundfunk Thüringen (MDR), were on a harmless sightseeing tour, taking in the historic cities of Jena and Weimar. It was a moment of relaxation during Father Ratzinger's short visit to East Germany, the...
