Hand Slapped Asian Woman to Francis: "Hong Kong es..."?

This is my take on what the Asian woman whose hands were slapped by Francis said.

At Fr. Z's Blog a Asian commenter Disc-Thrower from a Asian "multiethnic city" said her language isn't any of seven Asian languages he knows and "wondered if" it was heavily accented "Spanish or Italian?"
(Fr. Z's Blog, "Distraught woman grabs Francis' hand and pleads. What did she say?" December 31, 2019)

I think the Asian commenter may be right, but after many times listening to it in slow and regular speed all I was able to hear or could understand, and I can't say this with 100 certainty, is:

"Hong Kong es... ."

Obviously if this is accurate the Spanish words "Hong Kong es"  just means "Hong Kong is" in English.

If as Fr. Z's headline put it the "distraught woman [was]... plead[ing]" for Francis to support Hong Kong, despite the pro-China Francis refusal to condemn the Chinese Communist regime's puppets in Hong Kong who are brutally manhandling and arresting the Hong Kong freedom protesters, then some things start to make sense.

The things that make sense if this is what she said are:

Why the pro-China Vatican security and media apparently can't track her down for Francis to apologise in person to her.

Why the pro-Francis and pro-China world media apparently can't track her down to explain what she said.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Chinese military likely have her and her companions in custody.

OPEN LETTER TO TAYLOR MARSHALL

Dr. Marshall, for many of us (myself included), your podcasts have been a source of enlightenment, entertainment, and—quite frankly—hope, during this very dark time in the history of the Church.  As someone who studied his way into the Catholic Faith, having the grace and the integrity to acknowledge the necessity of conversion from the Protestant sect to which you formerly belonged, you have not been content to rest on your laurels but have “put yourself out there,” launching the New Saint Thomas Institute and discussing current events sub luce aeternitatis.  Your willingness to deal with things the way they are, and not the way they would be if we were all painted on holy cards already, is refreshing and appreciated.
Accordingly, I am writing to you today in regard to your recent statements about being “open” to the idea that Jorge Bergoglio is not actually the pope.  For a person in your position, so much as admitting that possibility must require all the grace and integrity you h…

Sex-abuse Worldview Vs. Christian Worldview

By Fred Martinez

Professor Allan Bloom, a philosopher who wrote "The Closing of the American Mind," thought that Friedrich Nietzsche was the father of modern America. He said, "Words such as 'charisma,' 'lifestyle,' 'commitment,' 'identity,' and many others, all of which can easily be traced to Nietzsche ... are now practically American slang."

But the most important Nietzschean slang word is "values."

"Values" are the death of Christian morality because values simply mean opinions. If opinion is how things are decided, then might makes right.

One must remember that whenever someone talks about values in modern America – family values or religious values or place-the-blank-in-front-of values – they are saying there is no real or objective right or wrong – only opinions of the self and its will to power.

Nietzsche's philosophy is summed up by Bloom as

Commitment values the values and makes them valuable. Not love…

Our Lady of Good Success: Is Pope Benedict the "Prisoner in the Vatican... in that Greatest Crisis of the Church"?

The apparitions of Our Lady of Success have been approved by the Catholic Church. Moreover, Our Lady of Good Success has had many miracles associated with it.

Here is part of the "Fourth Apparition: January 21, 1610" which the influencial and prominent Catholic blogger Laramie Hirsch believes may possibly be referring to Pope Benedict XVI:

"The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican... in that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated to speak in due time will remain silent."
(The Story of Our Lady of Good Success and Novena, Dolorosa Press, Pages 40-41)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.
