Cardinal Zen Calls On Mainland Bishops To Act Wisely At Pivotal Moment PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 03 January 2009

January 2, 2009 - HONG KONG (UCAN) -- Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-kiun of Hong Kong has called for bishops in mainland China to courageously fulfill their responsibilities to the Church, saying compromise cannot last forever.

The cardinal made the call in his article in the Jan. 4 issue of Kung Kao Po, the diocese's Chinese-language weekly. On Dec. 24, he had announced to local media that Pope Benedict XVI had agreed to let him retire in the first half of 2009, although the date of retirement has yet to be announced, and that he would focus on China Church affairs.

In his article, “Inspiration from St. Stephen’s Martyrdom,” the cardinal reviewed developments since 2006 and made an appeal to his “brothers in mainland China.”

“Don’t be afraid. Bear the responsibilities that history has placed upon you! In this critical moment, your choice could revive the Church or it could let her languish for a long time,” he told mainland bishops.

“You are held accountable to history and you must be prepared to stand firm without blemish before God’s judgment,” he continued.

Free Lui Xiaobo PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 15 December 2008

As human rights suporters throughout the world were preparing to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the International Declaration of Human Rights, Liu Xiaobo, one of China's most prominent human rights activists was arrested in his home in Beijing. His telephone and internet lines were cut, and his personal papers, books and computers were seized.

The day before the anniversary, a document called Charter 08 was released to the world. Charter 08 was based on Charter 77, a human rights manifesto, which challenged Soviet rule and was originally signed by about two hundred writers and intellectuals in Czechoslovakia in 1977. One of the signers of Charter 77 was playwright Vaclav Havel who later became the first President of democratic Czechoslovakia after the 1989 "velvet revolution".
