So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter.—2 Thessalonians 2:15

Edward Pentin: the pen (and smart phone) is mightier than the Cardinal's word.

Edward Pentin, journalist, National Catholic Register: Statement on Cardinal Kasper Interview. Audio and printed transcription.

As it was said here earlier, and now confirmed by the interventions of orthodox prelates and interviews such as Mr. Pentin's brilliant audio capture of Cardinal Kasper's condescension and attempted deception, the Synod of Bishops is achieving at least four things. It is:
  • proving the mainstream media are really out of touch with the teaching of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
  • exposing media bias and media attempts to manipulate Catholics.
  • exposing heretics (!) and careerists in the Church.
  • getting Catholics talking and mobilizing faithful Catholics to take up the promotion of truth.
Walter (Cardinal Kasper), you got some splainin to do!

"A multitude of wise men is the salvation of the world(.)—Wisdom 6:24. Readers are welcome to make rational and responsible comments. Any comment that 1) offends human dignity and/or 2) which constitutes an irrational attack on the Catholic Faith will not go unchallenged. If deemed completely stupid, such a comment will most assuredly not see the light of day. Them's the rules. Don't like 'em? Move on.

We are not just material beings, but spiritual persons with a need for meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that transcends the visible confines of this world. This longing for transcendence is a longing for truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty are called the transcendentals of being, because they are aspects of being. Everything in existence has these transcendentals to some extent. God, of course, as the source of all truth, goodness, and beauty, has these transcendentals to an infinite degree. Oftentimes, He draws us to Himself primarily through one of these transcendentals. St. Augustine, who was drawn to beauty in all its creaturely forms, found the ultimate beauty he was seeking in God, his creator, the beauty “ever ancient, ever new.”―Sister Gabriella Yi, O.P.
