VIDEO – On EWTN – Fr. Murray and Dr. Royal about Exhortation, devastating interview with Card. Zen about China

Tonight on Arroyo’s show, my good friends Fr. Murray and Prof. Royal talk about a range of issues involving the new Apostolic Exhortation.

In the second half of the show, former Bishop of Hong Kong Joseph Card. Zen gave a live interview. It is devastating about the Vatican and China accord, and the plight of Chinese Catholics.

BTW… Card. Zen has a newish book, out about year ago.

    I can’t think of anything in the current state of affairs that has caused me more anguish than the betrayal and plight of the Catholic Church in China. (The more after watching the video of Bp. Sorondo snickering next to Jeffrey Sachs) Cardinal Zen’s suffering and dismay are evident. I fear this terrible secret agreement can never be undone. What are we to do besides pray, especially for the faithful and suffering Chinese clergy.

    We started saying the Litany for priests again on most days and have added Cardinal Zen to our other prayers. I cannot get over the suffering of priests. Please continue to pray for priests, seminarians, and religious who pray for priests! (And poor suffering Christians around the world.)

    Thank you for promoting this! It was wrenching. Cardinal Zen got completely rebuffed by Parolin and the Pope. Unfortunately it reeks of our current Catholic crisis. The United States Congress is acting with more Catholic values than the Vatican. I will buy his book. But all Catholics ought to be helping these people and crusading for religious freedom in China: they just passed a provision stating all religious institutions must actively promote the Communist Chinese government and values.
