    ...and the Holy See from 'precipice'

    Fr. Wei Heping, 41, died in mysterious circumstances, his body dumped in a river in Taiyuan (Shanxi). For the police claim he committed suicide. Families are not even allowed to see the autopsy report. For Card. Zen the Holy See (which "is not necessarily the pope) seeks a compromise at all costs with the Chinese government, risking to "sell out the faithful Church". Justice and Peace publish a booklet about Fr.Wei, not to forget.

    Pope St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI were always solidly on the side of the underground Church, the true Church in China. There was never a doubt. But the Vatican is now wavering on this.

    I think the Vegas odds would be on that the priest was dumped in the water after being killed by agents of the government.

    Where does Pope Francis stand regarding the underground church?

    "Card. Zen: My concerns over China-Holy See dialogue and repercussions on Chinese Church

    "The bishop emeritus of Hong Kong highlights the ambiguities that drag on in talks and in the expectations of diplomatic relations between China and the Vatican: belonging to the Patriotic Association, which Benedict XVI called "incompatible" with Catholic doctrine (and which Francis confirmed); silence on the persecution of the faithful and priests; ambiguities over appointment of bishops. A critique of the revival of the Vatican's Ostpolitik." More
