Quietly Heroic Chinese Cardinal Dies

Cardinal Shan

Though the world is mostly indifferent, the Catholic Church in China suffers a great deal at the hands of the brutal Communist regime which rules that country.  One of the Church's leaders, Cardinal Paul Shan Kuo-Hsi, recently died, but because Cardinal Shan did not entertain trendy views regarding morality or dogma, his death, unlike that of his fellow Jesuit Cardinal Martini of Milan, was not considered newsworthy.   Nor did Cardinal Shan receive any fawning elegies from media bigwigs the way Cardinal Martini did.  However, one senses that winning adulation from the news media  was not among Cardinal Shan's goals.   Chiesa has more here.
