Cardinal Zen: ":Do I think that the Vatican is selling out the Catholic Church in China? Yes, definitely."

Cardinal Zen has issued another statement; 
So, do I think that the Vatican is selling out the Catholic Church in China? Yes, definitely, if they go in the direction which is obvious from all what they are doing in recent years and months.
If I were asked, whom do I believe, Cardinal Zen or the Pope and his Vatican apparatchiks, the answer is quite easy.

From Cardinal Zen:

Some explanations may still be in order.

1. Please, notice that the problem is not the resignation of the legitimate Bishops, but the request to make place for the illegitimate and even excommunicated ones. Many old underground Bishops, though the retirement age law has never been enforced in China, have insistently asked for a successor, but have never received any answer from the Holy See. Some others, who have a successor already named, may be even already in possession of the Bulla signed by the Holy Father, were ordered not to proceed with the ordination for fear of offending the Government.

2. I have talked mainly of the two cases of Shantou and Mindong. I do not have any other information except the copy of a letter written by an outstanding Catholic lady, a retired University professor well-acquainted with affairs of the Church in China, in which she warns Msgr. Celli against pushing for the legitimization of “bishop” Lei Shi Ying in Sichuan.

3. I acknowledge myself as a pessimist regarding the present situation of the Church in China, but my pessimism has a foundation in my long direct experience of the Church in China. From 1989 to 1996 I used to spend six months a year teaching in the various Seminaries of the official Catholic community. I had direct experience of the slavery and humiliation to which those our brother Bishops are subjected.

And from the recent information, there is no reason to change that pessimistic view. The Communist Government is making new harsher regulations limiting religious freedom. They are now strictly enforcing regulations which up to now were practically only on paper (from the 1st of February 2018 attendance to Mass in the underground will no longer be tolerated).

4. Some say that all the efforts to reach an agreement is to avoid the ecclesial schism. How ridiculous! The schism is there, in the Independent Church! The Popes avoided using the word “schism” because they knew that many in the official Catholic community were there not by their own free will, but under heavy pressure. The proposed “unification” would force everybody into that community. The Vatican would be giving the blessing on the new strengthened schismatic Church, taking away the bad conscience from all those who are already willing renegades and those others who would readily join them.

5. Is it not good to try to find mutual ground to bridge the decades-long divide between the Vatican and China? But can there be anything really “mutual” with a totalitarian regime? Either you surrender or you accept persecution, but remaining faithful to yourself (can you imagine an agreement between St. Joseph and King Herod?)

6. So, do I think that the Vatican is selling out the Catholic Church in China? Yes, definitely, if they go in the direction which is obvious from all what they are doing in recent years and months.

7. Some expert on the Catholic Church in China is saying that it is not logical to suppose a harsher religious policy from Xi Jinping. However, we are not talking about logical thinking, but the obvious and crude reality.

8. Am I the major obstacle in the process of reaching a deal between the Vatican and China? If that is a bad deal, I would be more than happy to be the obstacle.

Judas sold out the Messiah for 30 pieces of silver. This pontificate sells out for the price of power, as in the New World Order.

This is a nightmare. When will it end. The people have to just watch as the church is taken over by abusive men, who molest and beat the Bride.
Please Lord, come to their aid.

These Apostates in the Vatican are selling out the entire OHC&A Church founded by Christ on the First Apostles for 30 pieces of silver as Judas did to Him in the Garden of Gethsemane. There is not a true Catholic amongst them, only Masons, Marxists & Sodomites who keep company with similar-minded people. The most frustrating & upsetting part of this Apostasy is having to witness that, apart from a very few (mainly retired) prelates, we have no-one actively interested in getting a shove on to kick them out of their elevated offices obtained by conspiracy. Prayer is great but must be followed by sustained & self-confident action (think Lepanto). The Church of Nice must be buried & the restoration on the Bride of Christ begun. Tough men of action badly needed. CC is in dire need of you. Will you answer her call?

I just finished reading an article on this topic in the Wall Street Journal. The comments under the article are interesting. I had no idea how well people have figured out what Bergoglio really is - a ruthless politician, a socialist. No one seems to have any respect for him.

“Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves."

Let us reflect on how Christ must feel about his modern apostles that instead of doing as He instructed are feeding the lambs to the wolves, acting as treacherous as serpents, and loving corruption like vultures.

Surely, the end times have arrived.
