I enjoyed the podcast and think the coming rapprochement between China and the Holy See is a good thing. However I thought that the opposition to the Vatican's strategy on the part of some Catholics was brushed over. For instance the issue of the repression, imprisonment and even execution of Catholics by Communist China was not brought up. That reality and the corresponding fears deserve a fair treatment.
