Rome, Italy, Nov 21, 2014 / 02:02 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Hong Kong’s retired prelate Cardinal Joseph Zen said that amid decades of communist rule in China, human values are at stake in all of Asia and can only be salvaged by fervidly preaching the gospel.
What threatens the continent most today, Cardinal Zen told CNA, “is a humanistic atheism; people who oppose God-to-man, man-to-God.”
By looking to the history of China, it’s clear “that communism has destroyed all human values. So to save human values we have to work hard to spread the good news of Jesus Christ,” he said. “We have to preach God because only God can save man.”
