“…it is known that controlling the ordinations has always been a demand from the Chinese government “, says the bishop of Hong Kong, his eminence Joseph Zen.” recently, the holy father talked about this very cautiously and reassured us. But in November there was news that two legitimate bishops were asked to give rise to two illegitimate bishops, one of whom is excommunicated. This concerns us, it would be a tragic thing for the church in China. For many years it was said that you should resist, be faithful, now ask to surrender! So, what for? One surrenders without obtaining anything, because this chinese government feels strong, scary, has economic means; it seems a surrender of the weak with the strong… but the reality is that we in the church have a lot of strength, is a force Spiritual.

These are those who go to the eternal fire. Continue reading

Not that God needs to have anyone to know He exists, but that we creatures might be able to share His love and goodness. This could give a probable cause for creation. Continue reading
