Underground Chinese bishop dead at 90
Catholic World News - February 28, 2011
A Chinese bishop who was sentenced to a decade of forced labor because of his fidelity to the Pope has died at the age of 90. Bishop Augustine Hu Daguo ministered in the south central province of Guizhou.
“With discretion and effectiveness he administered the clergy and faithful of his apostolic prefecture with great zeal and spiritual fervor, giving life and hope to the various parish communities, scattered in the mountainous region,” L’Osservatore Romano reported. “Bishop Hu led a life teaching simplicity and poverty, in full adherence to the principles of the universal Church and to the primacy of Peter.”
