Unity, unity, unity contra to truth. Typical. What would have happened if the Trinitarians preferred unity to truth contra the Arians?
“With this papal support and leniency toward the Communist-linked bishops, Cardinal Zen adds, “indirectly, the Vatican is helping the government to annihilate the underground Church that Beijing was not able to crush.”
Zen also asks whether one can speak of unity when “they force the underground to enter the bird cage?”
Zen describes how the good bishops in China are now even more marginalized since the Vatican agreement, but that they continue to fight. “Now the regime is destroying the underground Church and disappointing the few good bishops in the official Church. They resist. They do what they can, but they are marginalized.”
Chen and Cdl Zen, and Dr. Mosher. Three of the most trusted voices on the Catholic Church in China. Cdl Sin+ from the Philippines was another, God rest his soul.
“Chen, in his article titled “A Pact with a Thief, a Deal with the Devil: The Vatican’s Pending Agreement with China,” said he was shocked and dismayed in seeing the Vatican/China agreement take shape.
“I have known and worked with countless individuals in China who have been persecuted for their beliefs,” wrote Chen at Public Discourse. “It has thus been with intense shock and dismay that I have watched the Vatican’s rapprochement with China take shape.”
Chinese Cardinal Joseph Zen said in a recent interview that the agreement “indirectly” amounts to the Vatican “helping the government to annihilate the underground Church that Beijing was not able to crush.”
If anybody has a right to speak out on the current Vatican/China controversy, it’s Chen.”
