NEW YORK, February 14, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) The communist-run Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association has always been objectively schismatic and remains that way but with the blessing from the Holy See, Cardinal Joseph Zen said today.
Cardinal Zen sat down with LifeSite for a one-on-one interview in New York today.
In the 20-minute discussion, the cardinal lamented the Popes silence on Chinas abuses of power in Hong Kong and described a dire situation for faithful Chinese Catholics.
One of the architects of the Catholic Churchs secret deal with the Chinese government, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin, is not acting for the faith, said Zen. Im sorry to say, he is not a man of faith because he despises the heroes of faith.
Commenting on the secretive Vatican-China deal, the cardinal warned that communists never accept compromise. They want full surrender. And so now we are at the bottom. They finished the operation selling the Church.
Cardinal Zen also spoke about the Chinese governments response to the Coronavirus outbreak and what that response shows about communism. He urged people to be well-informed and look to history.
With a totalitarian regime, theres no possibility of any talk or bargaining. No, no, warned Zen. They just want you on your knees.

Love of money.
The heroes of Francis faith are Karl Marx, Bolshevik Bernie, Greta Thunberg, and AOC.
Zen is a great Chrtisian and a living martyr.
