Bishops arrested in China

The shocking behaviour of China in sending police to forcibly make four orthodox Catholic Bishops attend a quasi "Consecration" of the state sponsored alternative catholic church against their will, surely needs far greater exposure and condemnation than it is getting. The ten million Catholics loyal to the Pope are forced underground while the state sponsored and "authorised" catholic church of 6 million is subject to state manipulation and interference; a sort of fascist establishment of the church. The freedom to proclaim allegiance to their true spiritual leader (in Rome) and to practice the faith of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church needs to be championed by the West, in actively supporting the Vatican against this persecution. Our prayers are asked for the resolution of this injustice and for the well being of fellow Christians living in fear and persecution.


  1. Is the state take over and suppression of the Catholic church not what happened in England? Dare one mention Henry VIII?

  2. In a word yes! I'm glad have made the connection.
