• CHURCHES BURNED

    Church scapegoated for tragedies in Canada’s “assimilation schools”

    About twenty churches, mostly Catholic, have been subject to arson or vandalised in Canada soon after the discovery of mass children's graves. The causal link is the role played by boarding schools set up by the Canadian government in the 19th century to assimilate indigenous tribes. Yet Indian schoolchildren often died of disease and hunger in the absence of government aid. Today, Prime Minister Trudeau is attacking the Church in an attempt to make the state forget its own sins.

    Cardinal Zen, Tienanmen doesn’t go away

    The sacrifice of the young people who died 32 years ago for freedom and democracy in China is evermore relevant today.

This is the homily Cardinal Zen gave in Hong Kong last June 4, during the memorial mass to remember the victims of Tienanmen Square.
