Pope Francis has Cardinals "Petrified" Silent with Fear says Vatican Expert Edward Pentin

Fr. Thomas Weinandy is an example of one who decided not to be silent and defend his cherished beliefs.

He lost his position with the USCCB instead of betraying his beliefs by the sin of omission.

The courageous Fr. Weinandy said in a letter to Pope Francis:

You "seem to censor and mock those who interpret Chapter 8 of Amoris Laetitia in accord with Church tradition... Many bishops are silent... Many fear that if they speak their mind, they will be marginalized or worst." (National Catholic Register, "Full Text of Father Weinandy's Letter to Pope Francis," November 1, 2017)

The example of the other side of this coin are all the silent bishops and Cardinals who "fear that if they speak their mind, they will be marginalized or worst" so they appear willing to betray their most cherish beliefs.

Vatican Expert Edward Pentin said "40 to 70 Cardinals" are silent because of their petrifying fear of Pope Francis and his Vatican. Pentin said:

"I was told earlier this year by a senior prelate that there is great concern by a good number of Cardinals about this pontificate and I also heard from another well placed source that... their estimate of about 40 to 70 Cardinals want a change, they are very concern, but they are simply petrified about speaking out."
(Fr. Z's Blog, November 4, 2017, "Edward Pentin's talk at the Catholic Identity Conference 2017," Quote from video in post)

That these Cardinals by their silence appear willing to betray their most cherish beliefs is the conclusion one gets from the video.

Even one source told Pentin that they know that they will have to answer to God on why they were silent during this crisis.

Fr. Z speaking of the video and Pentin said:

"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."



Again, these Cardinals that Pentin speaks of in the video by their silence appear willing to betray their most cherish beliefs.

In fact, Pope Francis appointed Cardinal Blase Cupich said that bishops and Catholics must betray their most "cherished beliefs" which he associates with "and long-held biases" to follow Francis:

“It is our job to take up that discernment. It takes time. It involves discipline. Most importantly it requires that we be prepared to let go of cherished beliefs and long-held biases.” (November 2, 2017, LifeSiteNews, "Catholics must let go of ‘cherished beliefs’ to ‘discern’ like Pope Francis: U.S. Cardinal" [https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/catholics-must-let-go-of-cherished-beliefs-to-discern-like-pope-francis-u.s])

Pray for the Dubia Cardinals that they issue the correction.

Pray also for the 40 to 70 Cardinals that they act like Fr. Weinandy and not commit the sin of omission by silence.

Say a Our Father now for these intentions.

"Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth (i.e., abortion). Laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will…And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
--Hilary Clinton, Women in the World Summit, NY, 4/20/2015

(Translation: Americans must change their religious beliefs to suit her.)

Cardinal Cupich channeling Hillary Clinton. No big deal.

Blaise Cupich would have rather listing these "most cherished beliefs" we will have to give up. This would help us "discerning" whethet this cardinal is still a catholic or a futur hierarch of the syncretic one world religion.

Chaput declares that he cannot differentiate between a pro-life candidate and an abortion fanatic:
