    Perhaps Archbishop Weurl will do what Cardinal McCarrick did. The week after he officially retires, he'll speak words of truth.

    The 2008 Summer Olympics will be held in Beijing. There'll be thousands of Catholics from around the world visiting China then. Where will they go to Mass?

    The persecutions by the State in China continue, and the Vatican continues to support the State-sponsored Communist CPA. Who is being loyal to whom here? And above all,who is being loyal to our Lord? My sympathy is with the underground church. Blessed Théophane Vénard, ora pro nobis.
