At the end of a two-month trial Cardinal Joseph Zen was found guilty along with five other human-rights activists. A $512 fine was imposed on Cardinal Joseph Zen, the Bishop Emeritus of Hong Kong, for his role in the now-dissolved fund established to aid participants of the 2019 pro-democracy demonstrations in the former British colony.

ACN asks for prayers for the 90-year-old Salesian Cardinal Zen to continue his journey as a “a ‘man of God’; submissive to the love of Christ, who wanted him to be his priest, deeply in love, like Don Bosco, with youth,” as Cardinal Fernando Filoni, former prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, described him some weeks ago.
