Is Cdl.Parolin the Puppet-Master behind the Pope’s Deal to Betray the Chinese Catholics or Does Francis have “No Faith”?
Cardinal Joseph Zen believes that Cardinal Pietro Parolin is the puppet-master behind Pope Francis’s deal to betray the underground Chinese Catholics to the Chinese Communist regime.
On November 2, Vatican expert Marco Tosatti reported that Cardinal Joseph Zen said:
“[T]he ‘Interim Agreement’ signed last September between the Holy See and the Chinese government allow a meeting between the two Churches… It does not make sense… It is a secret agreement of which only three elements are known for the time being. Everything is controlled by Parolin [Secretary of State, ed.], The Pope does not understand anything. Parolin does not tell the whole truth to Pope Francis! Parolin knows the reality of the situation of Chinese Catholics, but does not tell the whole truth to the Pope. He has no faith!… He wants a diplomatic agreement with China.” [https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&ie=UTF8&nv=1&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=auto&sp=nmt4&tl=en&u=https://www.marcotosatti.com/2018/11/02/zen-il-papa-crede-di-poter-unire-la-chiesa-in-cina-ma-e-ingenuo-non-avra-lultima-parola-con-i-comunisti/&xid=17259,15700019,15700122,15700124,15700149,15700186,15700191,15700201,15700214,15700230&usg=ALkJrhgVetExMjuR3v2_4HE5V5x5y6AGSQ]
Communist expert Robert Royal on EWTN’s World Over has said that the Chinese government is a totalitarian regime that doesn’t respect truth, religious rights and most of all human life.
It is evil and totally godless.
Human life for them is cheap. People are killed and tortured at the whim of the regime.
Do Parolin and Francis believe that the underground Chinese Catholics are worthless things that they can cause suffering for to play at the so-called game of “diplomacy”?
If the Pope is actively collaborating with Parolin, with full understanding, in the totalitarian Chinese Communist deal, then he “has no faith” as Cardinal Zen said of Parolin. Francis said of the China deal:
“I think of the resistance, the Catholics who have suffered. It’s true. And they will suffer…”
“… I signed the [China deal] agreement,” Pope Francis stated. “I am responsible.”
(Catholic Herald, “Pope Francis takes responsibility for China Deal,” September 26,2018)
The betrayal of the Chinese Church can thus be called the Francis/Parolin deal.
The Francis/Parolin deal is a abuse of papal power which can be disobeyed in good conscience as shown by the saintly English Bishop Robert Grosseteste.
In 1253, Bishop Grosseteste disobeyed Pope lnnocent IV who ordered that a benefice within his jurisdiction be given to the papal nephew. Benefices were a form of financial exploitation given to prelates who didn’t reside in the diocese and never saw their flock so souls were lost for lack of true shepherding or pastoral care.
Grosseteste said that benefices have only one end: “the salvation of souls.” Exploitative use of benefices was a abuse of papal power so he disobeyed Pope Innocent IV.
Innocent reportedly raged in anger, but his advisors told him to back down because all of Christendom knew Bishop Grosseteste was “one of the most learned men” of the age and a saintly bishop.
The Catholic Encyclopedia said of Grosseteste:
“Bishop of Lincoln and one of the most learned men of the Middle Ages… That he opposed… abuses of the papal administration is certain, but a study of his letters and writings… destroy the myth that he disputed the plena potestas of the popes.”
(Catholic Encyclopedia, new advent.org, “Robert Grosseteste”)
If a pope could be disobeyed by “one of the most learned men of the Middle Ages” for the lost of souls due to benefices then there is no doubt that the Francis/Parolin betrayal of the Chinese Church to the totalitarian Communist regime which will result in the loss souls must be disobeyed.
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.
