Beijing does not respect our Church, says Card Zen
The Hong Kong prelate voices his bitterness at the excommunicated bishop who took part in an ordination in Yibin. He also expresses his disappointment at the behaviour of newly ordained bishop, who went through with the ceremony out of either fear or confusion. Police deployment shows the government’s fears but also its power over the Church. Taipei bishop laments the fact for mainland China, the Church is worth less than a business.

Episcopal ordination in Xuzhou is "indecent and astounding", says Card Zen
The bishop of Hong Kong stresses the "astounding" methods by the Patriotic Association and the Religious Affairs Bureau in the unlawful Episcopal ordination. It make China look ridiculous, offends the faithful and damages the interests of the country. He appeals to the central government to start meaningful talks with the Holy See.

Rethinking China-Vatican accords (with a touch of irony)
There are various discrepancies in discussions on relations between China and the Holy See. Despite the fact that there is still no public agreement, many commentators hotly discuss it as if it were common gossip. Even the bishops are often reduced to mere puppets; the lack of mutual trust between the two parties; the Taiwan issue: these are some of the problems outlined by the informed author, who calls himself "the hermit priest of the North" and is a very famous priest-blogger in China.

Card. Tong: Communion of the Church in China with the Universal Church
Card. John Tong, bishop of Hong Kong, gives an in-depth explanation of the Holy See’s reasons for continuing dialogue with Beijing: to ensure greater religious freedom to the Catholic communities; re-establish unofficial and imprisoned bishops; reinstate illicit bishops. The Letter of Pope Benedict XVI is "absolutely valid."
