September 04, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: Defying their government, an estimated 170 Chinese Catholics traveled to neighboring Mongolia to see Pope Francis during his apostolic journey there. The Chinese Catholics wore face masks and took other measures to conceal their identify.
At the conclusion of Mass on September 3, Pope Francis conveyed “a heartfelt greeting to the noble Chinese people. I send my good wishes to them all: always move forward, always advance! And to Chinese Catholics: I ask you to be good Christians and good citizens.”
