NEW YORK, February 14, 2020 (www.lifesitenews.com) – 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 Pope’s silence on China’s abuses of power in Hong Kong and described a dire situation for faithful Chinese Catholics.

One of the architects of the Catholic Church’s secret deal with the Chinese government, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin, “is not acting for the faith,” said Zen. “I’m 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 government’s 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, there’s no possibility of any talk or bargaining. No, no,” warned Zen. “They just want you on your knees.”

Thors Catholic Hammer, I’m with you a hundred percent. We have come to a point in history that some of us laypeople are blinded by our own intellect. I have learned that most intellectual people lack STREET SMARTS....
Then you've learned incorrectly Lalanz ;-)

And STREET SMARTS has nothing to do with Canon Law and a valid Papal succession -no matter how unpleasant the outcome.

If Francis has a hand in appointing his successor, the next Pope is going to be even worse.

Street smarts equals common sense...playing it by the book, without using common sense is dangerous
Dumb ideas are always presented under the label of "common sense". It's a popular leftist trick. "Common sense solutions" that are neither.
@Thors Catholic Hammer "Such vile malevolence from posters who pretend to be catholic ."

Remember that criticism the next time you're hurling invectives at Pope Francis.

@ @St Cuthbert Mayne
St Cuthebert Mayne and Ultraviolet now wish death and harm to posters who disagree with their views.
Both these poster fully support the vindictive and violent antipope Francis so it is entirely expected they would want to also see physical harm come to others.
Such vile malevolence from posters who pretend to be catholic .
They are both whited sepulchres.
Cardinal Zen fails to expose and continues to support the real architect of the Vatican-Sino secret agreement namely the excommunicated formal heretic Jorge Bergoglio (stage name “pope” francis.)
As such his complaints are not listened to by anybody.
