Cardinal: Vatican Names Dogs in Place of Bishops
The Vatican has recognized men who've been the Communist regime's Bishops for years. In public, the supposed warming of relations to fat cats was bought in Peking. The faithful will pay the bill.
[kreuz.net, Hong Kong] The Emeritus Bishop of Hong Kong, Joseph Cardinal Zen, has openly criticized the communist-friendly China-politic of the Vatican's Congregation of Missions on 'AsiaNews'.
The text is a copy of an article by a Father Jeroom Heyndrickx, where the Cardinal draws a question mark about the middleman between the Communists and the Congregation of Missions.
The Vatican in the Service of the Church's Enemies
Cardinal Zen said that he was a sinner at the beginning of his article: "But I would add to my many sins -- if I were like a dog who did not bark when the time was right for it."
The Prince of the Church insists that he will speak out against the aims of the Vatican and the Chinese Communists.
But for all that will awake the impression, that it is not so and their purpose has been discovered.
Then the Cardinal demystified the mythos of the Chinese communists' mutually recognized Bishops.
These proceedings will serve the aims of the Communist party.
A Dog on the Leash
Cardinal Zen says that the Bishops of the official state "Patriotic Union" are "slaves, or, even worse; as dogs on a leash".
The Bishops of the regime named by the Vatican are according to him "modern false prophets". They travel -- says Cardinal Zen -- happily on the imperial caravan of the independent church and call out from time to time, "Long live the Pope".
Then the Communist government supervises the state Bishops. These will only hear and obey.
They must depart from meetings, without knowing, where the journey begins.
They were invited to meetings, without knowing the subject.
They must hold speeches, without having seen the text beforehand.
The methods of persecution have improved.
Today the victims are invited to dinner, city tours and awards.
One is certain, however, to respect their freedom of conscience.
But Cardinal Zen knows, that the promises of Communists mean nothing.
For according to the left, "Lies are a legitimate means, to reach your goal".
