Sino-Vatican Cold War

  • "We are back in the 1950s," said Father Bernardo Cervellera, quoted by Alan Holdren — China trying to prove it is 'master of the Church,' missionary priest warns. "Honestly, I would say that with these [episcopal] elections we are taken back to the time of Mao Zedong and the foundation of the Patriotic Association."

  • Francesco Sisci says that the "looming schism of the Catholic Church in China after Beijing gave a green light for state-sponsored worshippers in the Chinese Patriotic Association to pull further away from the Vatican... could provoke dire international political consequences for China" — China feels tug of religious war.
