The Pope's Silence on China
"(T)here is one place where China’s bullying elicits only silence: the Vatican.

At a moment when he and his family most need their shepherd, Pope Francis is MIA.
The silence might be understandable if Pope Francis were in the tradition of pontiffs who hold themselves aloof from worldly affairs.

But on China . . . silence." Read the story here (paywall may apply.)
