Chinese authorities seize ‘underground’ bishop

CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Vincent Guo Xijin of Mindong has been detained by police, the AsiaNews service reports.

Bishop Guo is one of the Chinese bishops who have been asked to step aside, as part of a proposed agreement between the Vatican and Beijing. He would be replaced by a bishop who was appointed by the Chinese government and illicitly ordained.

Bishop Guo was reportedly questioned by police, then taken away from his residence. He had also been detained by police just before Easter last year.

    OK, I'm hoping mad. Allowing this to take place while beating up SSPX shows doctrinal inconsistency. This, plus the ambiguity of the pope as noted elsewhere begins to shy away from incompetence and toward the something worse.

    It didn't take long at all to see the results of the Vatican's cozying up to Chinese communist regime.
