Is Pope Francis optimistic about the Church in China?

Whilst open to acts of good will, the pontiff reiterated the relevance of Benedict XVI's Letter to Chinese Catholics. He also deplored the bishops' lack of freedom, making it clear that dialogue requires openness as well as coherent values. Christians are never pessimistic because they know that everything is in the hands of Providence. It would also be wrong to give up fidelity for immediate results.
