Cardinal Zen Confirms the Vatican Backing Schismatic Counterfeit "Church"

I can't get this off of my mind. I think it's the worst scandal in the history of the Church. Much worse than ordaining and protecting pedophiles.

"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," the 86-year-old retired Bishop of Hong Kong wrote in a Jan. 29 letter addressed to “Friends in the Media,” in which he confirmed a report that the Vatican had asked legitimate Chinese bishops to step down in favor of communist-picked bishops.

Cardinal Zen outlined how the Vatican's capitulation to China’s communist regime is only making the regime clamp down harder on faithful Catholics.​

"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)," he wrote.

Cardinal Zen explains he met face to face with Pope Francis:

Cardinal Zen landed in Rome on the morning of January 10, and went straight to the Pope’s Wednesday Public Audience held in Paul VI Hall, hoping to have an opportunity to place his letter in the Pope’s hands. When he had the chance to greet the Pope, he explained that this was his sole reason for his spur-of-the-moment travel to Rome.

Two days later, Cardinal Zen was invited to Santa Marta where he met privately with Pope Francis. “I was there in the presence of the Holy Father representing my suffering brothers in China,” recounts Zen in his letter. Pope Francis promised to look into the matter.

Zen related that after he outlined his concerns the Pope told him the following words: “Yes, I told them (his collaborators in the Holy See negotiating with China) not to create another Mindszenty case.”

Commented the Cardinal in his letter:

I think it was most meaningful and appropriate for the Holy Father to make this historical reference to Card. Josef Mindszenty, one of the heroes of our faith. (Card. Josef Mindszenty was the Archbishop of Budapest, Cardinal Primate of Hungary under Communist persecution. He suffered much in several years in prison. During the short-lived revolution of 1956, he was freed from prison by the insurgents and, before the Red Army crashed the revolution, took refuge in the American Embassy. Under the pressure of the Government he was ordered by the Holy See to leave his country and immediately a successor was named to the likings of the Communist Government).​

Cardinal Zen had previously denounced a Vatican agreement with the Chinese atheistic Communist government and had indirectly accused Pope Francis of backing a “fake” church in China.

“But the whole thing is fake. They [the Vatican] are giving decisive power to the government … how can the initiative of choosing bishops be given to an atheistic government? Incredible. Incredible,” he said at that time.

Incredible all right. Incredibly demonic.

Pope Francis said 'he's going to look into it'. When pigs fly.

If he [PF] believes that this move will ease tensions in "Red" China, then
he is a bigger fool than I thought.

Refer back to any book, anent the relations [Vatican-Moscow Pact] between the Church and the former "Eastern Bloc," how did that succeed? It failed.

It took Saint (Pope Saint John Paul II), along with others, to help bring down that demonic empire. Pope Francis is NO Pope Saint John Paul II.

WHY would Bergoglio allow this to happen? The 64 million dollar question. But....I would not be surprised if it had something to do with MONEY. I would not be surprised in the least to learn that he sold the faithful in China for 30 pieces of silver. I don't think it's a stretch to say that he basically signed their death warrant. And he KNOWS IT. He has given EVIL a whole new meaning.

"Pope" Francis is all about the New World Order. He is a politician and a Communist. He is not a Catholic. Any form of his undermining the Church should not surprise us. In fact, it should be expected.

Anonymous, the meeting was the same old. Those who see wrongs and try to right them meet with those with blood on their hands to tell them what they already know. They act surprised and tell you they will look into it. Some don't even bother to represent they will follow up, they just reach into their bag of platitudes and fire them at you.

I stopped trying to think of excuses for their misfeasance, malfeasance and nonfeasance decades ago. All we can do is honor Christ and our Baptismal promises by standing in front of them and exposing their guilt, in the most charitable way possible, and hold them accountable for fixing it.

Michael, Sadly, after five years of his daily missives supporting communist regimes, murderers, abortionists, apostates and heresy and opposing those who speak the Truth, this is exactly what I expect until the throne that belongs to Christ is once again sede vacante and we get another crack at it.

Michael - ps

What he did in China is really what he is doing to the Church and US Catholics, except that he is forced to go about it more discreetly. The Church in China was overthrown years ago and the government took control. With the election of Trump, the momentum in the US was stopped and we have taken back some control. He can't be as forthcoming because the counterfeit church here is still underground.
