Persecution of Church in China continues despite talk of a thaw
May 24, 2018
CWN Editor's Note: “China is reluctant to sign an agreement with the Holy See on the selection and appointment of Catholic bishops,” said Father Bernardo Cervellera, editor of AsiaNews. “I do not consider this agreement as positive for the Church, because the regime would select the candidates. However, some in China regard it as dangerous for the government too ... The optimism transmitted to the media was part of a Vatican campaign aimed at persuading the Chinese side to sign the agreement.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
