"Cardinal Joseph Zen is one of the great witnesses of the twenty-first-century Church. His thoughts on the future of Catholicism in China should be taken with the utmost seriousness by anyone who cares about the New Evangelization in the spiritual desert of the world's largest country."
— George Weigel, Author, The Fragility of Order: Catholic Reflections on Turbulent Times
"Reading For Love of My People I Will Not Remain Silent prayerfully is an act of solidarity. We must listen to those who insist on Christ in the midst of totalitarianism, who choose him lovingly and courageously. Thank you, Cardinal Zen, for being a voice for God’s faithful people in China."
— Kathryn Jean Lopez, Senior Fellow, National Review Institute; Editor-at-Large, National Review
"Joseph Cardinal Zen, born in Shanghai and former seminary teacher in mainland China, offers rare insights into the past and present condition of China's suffering Church. In this timely book, Zen asserts that 'a terrifying scenario is unfolding' now in China."
— Anthony Clark, Ph.D., Professor of China's Catholic History, Whitworth University
"Cardinal Zen's unadorned eloquence reveals a patient silence 'like a lamb before its shearers' (Is 53:7) during many years of suffering. At the same time, as the prophet said, 'For Jerusalem's sake I will not remain quiet' (Is 62:1), so does Cardinal Zen say for China."
— Fr. George Rutler, Author, Calm in Chaos: Catholic Wisdom for Anxious Times
"No one in the twenty-first century has offered better witness to the suffering of these underground Catholics than Cardinal Zen, who urges the Vatican to shun power-politic deals with the Communist state. Let today's papacy follow instead the path of the 'Lamb who appears weak'—the path followed faithfully for so many years by the martyred Church of China."
— David Pinault, Ph.D., Professor of Religious Studies, Santa Clara University; Author, The Crucifix on Mecca's Front Porch
"Cardinal Joseph Zen is a humble, self-effacing prelate. But his principled opposition to the new Sino-Vatican Agreement, which he sees as a betrayal of our suffering co-religionists in China, has vaulted him into the headlines. He has pleaded with Pope Francis not to abandon the Underground Church, which has survived decades of persecution and is now, once again, under siege. To know what is really happening to faithful Catholics in China, and what we should be doing about it, read the testimony of this thoroughly reliable witness."
— Steve Mosher, President, Population Research Institute

I am very concerned that the Sacraments may become corrupted. Thank God that there are other means of establishing a relationship with God. Chinese Catholics are in my prayers. God give them the courage to preserve in these times.
