Card. Zen to retire?

This is in from Zenit:

ROME, SEPT. 28, 2006 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI has promised to consider allowing Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-kiun to retire as bishop of Hong Kong, and expressed his affection for the city’s Catholics, says a news report.

Speaking after a private audience with the Pope, the 74-year-old Cardinal Zen said he had told the Pontiff of his desire to retire as head of the Hong Kong Diocese to play a bigger role in affairs related to the mainland Church, according to the South China Morning Post.

"The Holy Father said he will consider it," Cardinal Zen said Wednesday after he emerged from the Vatican Apostolic Palace.
