Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-kiun, retired bishop of Hong Kong, is pictured in a file photo. Chris Patten strongly criticized the Vatican's treatment of Zen, an outspoken critic of China. He noted that Catholic leaders were still prepared to shake hands with the Chinese foreign minister, yet Zen visited Rome and was not granted an audience with Francis. (CNS/Paul Haring)
