Vatican, Beijing both approve new Chinese bishop

Catholic World News - September 21, 2010

For the 8th time this year, a new Chinese bishop has been installed with the approval of both the Holy See and the Beijing government.

Bishop Peter Wu Junwei was consecrated on September 21 to head the Yuncheng diocese. All of the bishops who participated in the ordination ceremony are in communion with the Holy See.

The selection of new bishops has been a point of contention between Rome and Beijing, with the government-approved Catholic Patriotic Association claiming the right to make episcopal appointments, and the Vatican rejecting that claim.
