November 2020


The November 2020 issue of Inside the Vatican magazine brings you a look at the Pope’s creation of 13 new cardinals — once again, in signature “Francis” form, from “the peripheries” of five continents…and this time, with a “particular accent on the sons of St. Francis.” 

Francis’ new “mold-breaking” encyclical Fratelli tutti gets a critical reception from some Catholics, and a welcome one from others, as we feature a sampling of reactions to the Pope’s new 43,000-word document on the brotherhood of man.

And Fr. Charles T. Murr, in our second installment, speaks at length with Kevin Symonds about the dramatic events he witnessed in the Roman Curia of the 1960s and 70s from his vantage point at the Vatican.

ITV also covers changes at the Vatican’s finance offices; the return of Cardinal Pell to Rome; the call for a “neutral Lebanon”; and the first abuse trial within the Vatican itself. And Jan Bentz interviews veteran Vaticanist Edward Pentin on his new book, The Next Pope.
