Holy Week Eucharistic Holy Hour and Rosary for Hong Kong with Archbishop Cordileone
Cardinal Zen, 91, is the bishop emeritus of Hong Kong (2002 - 2009). He is an outspoken advocate for religious freedom and democracy. Cardinal Zen was arrested last May by Hong Kong authorities and put on trial for allegedly failing to civilly register a pro-democracy fund. He was convicted and ordered to pay a fine, which he has appealed.
Mr. Lai is a 75-year-old Catholic businessman in Hong Kong who, inspired by his Catholic faith, has peacefully advocated democracy and respect for human rights. Because he spoke the truth in the fight for freedom, Mr. Lai has been jailed by authorities since December 2020, and is awaiting his final trial this September.
