CWN Editor's Note: Commenting on the Pope’s recent address to the diplomatic corps, Andrea Tornielli, the new editorial director of the Dicastery for Communication, writes, “Much concrete work is yet to be done, in order to resolve the various delicate questions that remain open. One such regards the case of ‘clandestine’ bishops who have not yet been recognized by the Chinese government: an activity in which the Holy See is deeply engaged and whose sole objective is the unity of the Church and the possibility for millions of Chinese Catholics to profess their faith in full communion with the Pope.”
