China’s role in Vatican’s Global Education Compact
VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) – Alarm is growing over a major Vatican conference in October as news emerges about the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP’s) involvement in the event and in Vatican affairs at large.
The Global Compact on Education is being conceived as a “resetting [of] the pedagogical itineraries of an ecological ethic” and, according to its website, is seeking “to ensure the most far-reaching and serene participation possible.”
The Vatican’s Global Compact on Education, scheduled for Oct. 15, has partnered with “One People, One Planet [which] is sponsored by, none other than, Huawei [a telecommunications provider blacklisted by the United States due to national security concerns]” Yore reported.
Speaking to the type of education that can be expected at the conference that occurs less than two weeks before the U.S. election, Yore said bluntly: “Pope Francis is virulently anti-American and communist … .”
To explain how the Holy See and the CCP became bedfellows, she pointed to Chinese President Xi Jinping’s “globalist” speech at Davos in 2017 when he said, “All roads lead to Rome” to illustrate his plan for how to invade world markets. “Apparently, all bank accounts lead to the Vatican as well,” Yore remarked.
Her remark echoed other recent news that sheds light on details of the secret Chinese-Vatican agreement.
On June 22, social media was a twitter with exiled Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui’s claim that Beijing is paying off the Vatican to stay silent about the CCP’s repression of religious freedom and plans for world domination as part of the 2018 agreement.
Yore agreed. “Xi’s got his money’s worth,” she said, explaining that the CCP bought silence from the pope on the Hong Kong violence against freedom marchers and China’s forced organ harvesting program, called one of the worst mass atrocities of the century. It also accounts for his praise for the “great job” China and the CCP did in containing the Wuhan virus.
“This is mind-boggling,” she said. “For decades we’ve had popes rail against the CCP, rail against the Patriotic Church, and along comes Francis … .”
In a pithy assessment of the whole situation, she said: “The CCP has snagged the moral voice of the vicar of Christ.”
Italy as China’s ‘Trojan Horse’
Yore and Wengui are not the only experts speaking out about collusion between the Vatican and the CCP.
In his new book Red Contagion: How Italy Became China’s Trojan Horse in the West, Italian public policy expert and hedge fund manager Francesco Galietti exposes the interplay of political and financial corruption among China, Italy and the Vatican.
Galietti said in a recent interview with Steve Bannon:
Italy has a very fragile and corrupt political system which is heavily exposed to China’s charm offensive. And what Italy has that no one else has is the presence of the Vatican on Italian soil. And so these days, the Vatican, which is hugely influential in the Italian political system, is tilted toward China, wants a deal with China and it is offering Italy to entice China.
The financial expert said, Italy has “always been a part of the West. It’s even being the cradle of the West. So seeing it drift towards Asia and especially towards authoritarian China is a nightmare.” And describing the pope’s amicability — or lack of it — toward the United States, Galietti said: “Let’s not forget this pope is not a friend of the U.S. for sure.”
“People have to pay attention especially in the upcoming fall,” Yore repeated.
“There are going to be some major anti-American events including the Global Compact on Education,” she said. The Vatican conference is “going to be pushing socialism to our kids” while the CCP “hide[s] in the background.”
Invitations for the Oct. 15 event have already been extended to representatives of various religions, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), academia and cultural and political leaders — “everyone who cares about the education of the young generation,” according to the website. Invitees will represent “the inhabitants of the earth,” and will sign a “Global Compact on Education, which each one will undertake to implement in their area and disseminate as much as possible.”
Details of the pact have not yet been released.
Earlier in the year, the pope pitched the conference to participants of the Plenary of the Congregation for Catholic Education as “an appeal to all those who have political, administrative, religious and educational responsibilities to rebuild the ‘village of education.'”
“Education is a dynamic reality. It is a movement that brings people to light,” the pope added.
The educational pact needs to be “revolutionary,” he said.
