沙神父:
今日中国教会面对的最大挑战是什么?


The greatest challenge to the Church in China today is to develop a pastoral care in a spirit of service. Because of the great respect Catholics have for their priests, no one will dare warn the priest of his shortcomings. Some priests may go their own way seeking power and money. They may favor their own family with Church money and live a comfortable way, far above the standard of living of their parishioners.

Such things happened in Western Church history. The French Revolution abolished the privileges of the clergy. Anticlerical attitudes developed among the people. This has been a lesson to the Church. Priest have learned what Jesus means by a humble service.
