A Very Strange Nomination

On September 28 Archbishop Savio Hon Tai-Fai, 66, the Secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, was named as the new Apostolic Nuncio to Greece. Hon has never held a diplomatic position and is a former professor of theology. In 2016 he served as the Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Agana, Guam. There may be two reasons for Hon's striking demotion: his opposition to the Vatican's obsequious behaviour toward China or his misjudgment of the situation in Guam where, after all, embattled Archbishop Anthony Apuron may have become the victim of a character assassination.
