Vatican commission on China meeting this week; veteran diplomat praised for informal efforts

Catholic World News - March 22, 2010

The special commission set up in 2007 by Pope Benedict XVI to discuss the Church in China will meet in Rome this week to reflect on the proper formation of priests and religious.

In a related development, Msgr. Eugene Martin Nugent, who served for years as the Vatican's liaison with the Church on the Chinese mainland, was ordained an archbishop and praised by his Chinese colleagues. Cardinal Joseph Zen said that the new archbishop, who had worked in an office in Hong Kong, without official diplomatic status, "was the de facto nuncio in China."
