The warning comes amid a crackdown on free expression in Hong Kong,  after the implementation of the new National Security Law in July.

A letter, obtained by CNA, was sent from Cardinal John Tong Hon, the former Bishop of Hong Kong and current administrator of the diocese on Friday.

Praise the Lord
