Cardinal Zen’s Response to Roberto de Mattei’s Criticism

Stilum Curiae:

Permit me, Prof. Roberto de Mattei?

I think that everyone knows that here in Hong Kong we are in full battle against the power that wants to completely dominate us, even our words and thoughts.

Blessed are those who can say what they think, without worrying about whether the authorities are in agreement.

The writer has been evaluated by someone as being partially right and partially wrong. Professor De Mattei praises me because I am protesting against the Ostpolitik of the Vatican with regard to the Church in China, but criticizes me because I defend the Second Vatican Council.

I thank him for the praise and I respond to the criticism (with his permission). Read full response here.
