There are two Catholic communities in China: the so-called “underground” or unofficial Church and the official, Chinese government-controlled Patriotic Church. Cardinal Joseph Zen is one of the most knowledgeable and credible witnesses to what is happening in China, especially on the relationship between these two communities. It has been recognized–and Pope Francis has confirmed–that the historic 2007 letter of Pope Benedict XVI “To the Bishops, Priests, Consecrated Persons and Lay Faithful of the Catholic Church in the People’s Republic of China” remains the magna carta of the Catholic Church in China. On the 10th anniversary of this letter, June of 2017, Cardinal Zen gave a series of eight lectures on the origin of the letter and the content of the final text. In these lectures, Cardinal Zen explains in detail what he considers is now threatening the fundamental principles of the letter and therefore “his people”. As the title indicates, for the love of his people, he will not remain silent. Paper.
