CWN Editor's Note: Saying that a proposed deal between the Holy See and Beijing would be an “irreversible and regrettable mistake,” a group of prominent lay Catholics in Hong Kong has called upon the world’s Catholic bishops to stop implementation of the agreement. Voicing their fear of betrayal and even schism, they write: “We are worried that the agreement would not only fail to guarantee the limited freedom desired by the Church, but also damage the Church’s holiness, catholicity, and apostolicity, and deal a blow to the Church’s moral power.”
