Synod fathers send solidarity message to Chinese bishop

Catholic World News - October 24, 2012

The Synod of Bishops has sent a message of solidarity to a Chinese prelate who was unable to participate in the October Synod sessions.

The Synod approved a message to Bishop Luca Ly Jingegn of Fengxiang, who had written to Pope Benedict XVI expressing his regret that Chinese bishops would not be present at the Synod. “Your intention was greatly appreciated,” the Synod fathers told the Chinese bishop. The Synod fathers noted that prelates from Hong Kong and Taiwan have participated in the Synod deliberations, but voiced the hope that mainland bishops could take part in future meetings.
