CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Joseph Zen has been hospitalized with breathing difficulties.

The 91-year-old retired Bishop of Hong Kong, who remains a leading figure in the human-rights struggle, said that his health declined after he returned from a trip to Rome for the funeral of Pope Benedict XVI.

Cardinal Zen, who has been found guilty of failing to register a charity, still faces more serious charges under China’s tough national-security law.
