From the office of the Secretariat of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.
Venerable Brothers of the Catholic Church,
We hear you have a quitter on your hands. Wait, we aren’t here to poke fun. We’ve been having trouble with one of ours as well. They just don’t make bishops like they used to.
Therefore, we humbly propose that you allow us, the Communist Party of China, to assist you in selecting the next Bishop of Rome.
