Pope asks prayers today for Chinese Church

Catholic World News - May 24, 2010

At the close of his Regina Coeli audience on Sunday, May 23, Pope Benedict XVI asked the faithful to remember a special Day of Prayer for the Church in China, to be observed on Monday, May 24.

As Chinese Catholics pray for a deeper unity with the universal Church, the Pontiff asked other Catholics to "join them in prayer." The Pope decreed an annual day of prayer in his 2007 letter to the Chinese Church. The prayer for unity is intended to spur the efforts to eliminate distinctions between the "official" Catholic Church sanctioned by the Beijing government and the "underground" Church loyal to Rome.
