New Chinese bishop ordained--with Vatican approval
CWN - May 20, 2011
China has allowed the ordination of a new Catholic bishop with the approval of the Holy See.
The installation of Bishop John Lu Peisen in the Yangzhou diocese follows a call by Pope Benedict XVI for worldwide prayer for the Church in China, and a warning from the head of the Patriotic Association that the Vatican should not “interfere” with the appointment of bishops by the government-backed group.
