Our old friend Argentinian Archbishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, go here to read about him, is back in the news, via a Google translation:
Beltramo explains that Mons. Sorondo visited Beijing (Beijing) for the first time a few months ago and returned to Rome excited. These are some of the phrases of the Argentine archbishop when interviewed by the journalist for Vatican Insider:
“They (the Chinese) seek the common good, subordinate things to the general good. Stefano Zamagni assured me, a traditional economist, very considerate in all times, by all Popes.
I found an extraordinary China; what people do not know is that the central Chinese principle is work, work, work. There is no other, in the background is as Paul said: he who does not work, who does not eat. You do not have shantytowns, you do not have drugs, young people do not have drugs. There is a positive national conscience, they want to show that they have changed, they already accept private property .”
Bishop Sorondo highlighted numerous points of agreement between the Holy See and Beijing, which “is defended the dignity of the person” following, more than other countries, the encyclical of Francisco “Laudato Si” on the care of the common home, placing himself between the most active advocates of the Cop21 agreement (the United Nations conference to limit the emission of gases that cause global warming). In this, he is assuming a moral leadership that others have left:
” The economy does not dominate politics, as in the United States , said by the Americans themselves. How is it possible that the oil multinationals manage (Donald) Trump? When, we know, that is doing wrong to the earth. According to the encyclical and according to what the scientists say. Liberal thought has liquidated the concept of the common good, they do not even want to take it into account, it affirms that it is an empty idea, without any interest. On the other hand, the Chinese do not propose work and the common good “.
The prelate stressed that also in the field of organ donation, China “has grown enormously”, leaving behind forced extraction (which it recognized and abolished as a practice in 2005) and launching a “very interesting” system that digitally links donors with recipients throughout the country. He assured that it is the “best method” he has seen because he considers donors as heroes and even have special cemeteries reserved for them.
- The Archbishop is an idiot.
- He is a loathsome toady to Pope Francis who will say anything to justify the Vatican betrayal of the underground Church.
- He truly is a fan of the appalling Chinese Communist dictatorship.
Of course, all three may be true.
China will not be enslaved forever and fools and worse like Sorondo will not be in charge of the Vatican forever.
