Chinese bishop urges Rosary, Catechism study during Year of Faith

Catholic World News - August 30, 2012

A 90-year-old Chinese bishop has directed that each parish in his diocese offer a public daily Rosary and a program of study devoted to the Catechism of the Catholic Church during the upcoming Year of Faith, which begins October 11.

Bishop Luke Li Jingfeng of Fengxiang, which is located in central China, also urged priests to organize study sessions for Sacred Scripture and the documents of the Second Vatican Council.

Consecrated a bishop in 1980, Bishop Li ministers openly but has not joined the government-run Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association.
