New Bishop ordained in China

... with the public approval of, it seems, both the PCA and the Holy See. He will serve as an auxilliary in the southern diocese of Guizhou.

And another bishop, of the "underground church" -- dies in custody after two years of solitary confinment.

It's a muddled picture, that's for sure.

By the way, if you happen to read any news stories (like one carried in the Hong Kong Standard yesterday) that say that the Guizhou ordination was without Vatican approval, ignore them. They are wrong wrong wrong wrong.

Thanks. I am too far away and not knowledgeable enough to know which sources are reliable. And often, the news is very conflicting. Generally I trust Asianews though.
