Cardinal Zen Says He Will Resign If Pope Appoints More Communist Bishops

Emeritus Archbishop of Hong Kong: "I can not fight the Pope. But if he legitimizes the six bishops [of the Catholic Patriotic Association], I will retire to praying in a monastery. “

Hong Kong (kath.net) "I can not fight the pope. But if he legitimizes the six bishops [of the Catholic Patriotic Association], I will retire to praying in a monastery. And I will not talk to journalists anymore. I will remain silent.” Cardinal Joseph Zen, Archbishop Emeritus of Hong Kong and longtime critic of Pope Francis' China policy, announced this again. The cardinal said in an interview with the Catholic French portal La Croix that he had recently handed the Pope a seven-page letter between the Vatican and the Communist government of China about the provisional agreement of secret content. Zen had traveled to Rome specifically because he had not trusted in the reliability of the followers of Francis. This is what Maike Hickson reported on "LifeSiteNews".

He explained to La Croix that he considered this provisional agreement to be destructive to the faithful Catholic underground Church of China.

After the secret agreement, Pope Francis recognized eight bishops loyal to the government, who had originally been ordained Catholic bishops without the consent of the Vatican.

The American-German ecclesiastical journalist Maike Hickson criticized that German-language media would "spread the wrong message" that Cardinal Zen withdrew into a monastery and pointed out that Zen has made only a conditional announcement.

- Prof. Thomas Schirrmacher: "The red in Cardinal Zen's clothing truly stands for martyr's blood"

Cardinal Zen: Vatican-China Agreement Will Be Disastrous for Entire Church — Parolin Doesn’t Have Faith, He Should Resign

Edit:
a few days ago there was an article in the Catholic Herald about the unofficial custodian of China relations with the Vatican and millions of Chinese Catholics, the disgraced and rotten Archbishop Theodore McCarrick. In the Italian Monthly, 30 Days, he was already on record.

Cardinal Zen sharply criticized the Vatican-China agreement and calls for the resignation of Cardinal Secretary Parolin "He should resign, I do not believe he has faith"

Hong Kong (kath.net) Joseph Cardinal Zen, the well-known Emeritus Archbishop of Hong Kong, sharply criticized the Vatican agreement with China. This is reported by Reuters. This agreement is an "incredible betrayal" of the Catholic faith. At the core of the agreement is that Chinese Catholics recognize the Pope, for which the Vatican will recognize the excommunicated bishops of the communist state church. In the end, two Catholic bishops would have to give up their diocesan seats.

Zen was especially critical of Cardinal Secretary of State Parolin. "He should resign, I do not think he has any faith, he's just a good diplomat in a very secular sense." The consequence of this agreement is serious for the whole world. It will be unbelievable for the Church. That's why, according to Zen, the Vatican agreement is kept as secret as possible. According to Zen, the agreement with the Vatican will be accepted by at most half of the Roman Catholic Church in China. "I'm afraid they'll do something irrational, they'll make a revolution."

Malleus (aliquorum) cardinalium -- Hard Times For "Dissenters" Among the Cardinals

(Rome) "Hard times" rule for cardinals who are considered "dissenters" from the path specified by the current Pope. The "Ultrabergogliani" (Master) Internet portal, Vatican Insider , which was created in collaboration with Andrea Tornielli, the House and Palace Vaticanists of Pope Francis announced within the last few days of  blows against three cardinals who had allegedly made ​​such infringements.

Against Cardinal Raymond Burke 

On February 14, Vatican insider  grasped with zeal an entry by Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington Cardinal  which the latter wrote to his American brother, Raymond Cardinal Burke. Although Cardinal Wuerl had not called his brother Burke by name, Vatican Insider published this even boldly, so that everyone would recognize the addressee,  the accused. Wuerl accused his brother of treason because of his criticism Pope Francis' decisions.

Against Cardinal George Pell

On February 16, Vatican Insider informed with a number of previously unknown details about steps that have been made ​​for Legislative Texts on behalf of Pope Francis and the Pontifical Council to reduce the decision-making powers and responsibilities of George Cardinal Pell as Prefect of the new Economy Secretariat. It was Francis who called Cardinal Pell, Archbishop of Sydney, who was still in Australia exactly one year ago to Rome and placed him at the head of the new Congregation.

Against Cardinal Joseph Zen

On February 19,   Vatican Insider devoted wide space for an article with some sarcastic criticism by an unknown Chinese priest, degrade  Cardinal Joseph Zen, Bishop Emeritus of Hong Kong and undisputed head of  the underground Catholic Church in China loyal to Rome. He was described  in caustically, as boycotting any attempt at "appeasement" between the Holy See and the communist government in Beijing.

Open season on the "kangaroo" Pell

After the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts and the Pension Fund of the Vatican rose against the Australian cardinal in the ring. On 20 February, he said in a press statement that the pensions of Vatican officials are secured and "disruptive" news in recent months were unfounded.
It is Cardinal Pell, who had been concerned for  months sounding an alarm because of the Vatican's pension funds. For the first time he did so in July 2014, with the announcement that it would have required a committee of experts to study the problems. He repeated it in the British weekly Catholic Herald last December and 13 February on the website crux of the Boston Globe.
Against the attempt by Cardinal Pell to bring order to the pension fund,  the same Board of Directors reacted. The chair  is Domenico Calcagno Cardinal, President of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA),   St. Peter Buildiong Works, the Propaganda Fide, the Secretariat of State, Vatican Radio and the Governor of Vatican City. "In short, the representatives of all these institutions were in a power struggle with Pell, who were struggling to preserve their economic and financial autonomy," said Magister.
Thus, below the encircling attack progress against the man who is often referred to by the English media as the "Czar" of Vatican finances, but within the holy walls, and even in altissimis, he is quite prosaically called the "kangaroo."

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".
