From Time: 10 Questions for the new bishop of Hong Kong

For us, the underground church was the lawful church because it was united with the Holy Father. Those other people, who followed the government in running the independent church, they were not in the right tradition because they were separated from Rome. So we had a very clear division of the two parts. Then, little by little, we had the chance to see the reality that even those in the so-called official church were much attached to Rome in their hearts. On the occasion of my ordination as bishop, I told people clearly that we consider both the underground church and the official church as our brothers. But actually it's not that easy to help the underground, and it's becoming more difficult.
