March 30, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Joseph Zen has written an open letter to Cardinal Robert Sarah, backing the latter cardinal’s plea to Pope Francis to rescind the ban on private celebration of Mass at St. Peter’s basilica. The retired Bishop of Hong Kong wrote: “If it were not for the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus, I would take the first flight to come to Rome and get on my knees in front of the door of Santa Marta (now the papal residence) until the Holy Father has this edict withdrawn.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
