An Update on the Church in China

From a friend “on the ground” who works at the Little Flower Orphanage in China:

On May 8, the cross of a Catholic Church in Cangnan county, Wenzhou, was demolished

On May 8, the cross of a Catholic Church in Cangnan county, Wenzhou, was demolished

The destruction of churches in Zhejiang province continues. The Holy Father gave a reminder at the end of his audience today [May 21] to pray for China on May 24.

The Holy Father asks us to pray today, because it is the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary Help of Christians:

“…venerated with much devotion in the shrine of Sheshan, at Shanghai, falls on May 24… ‘I ask all the faithful to pray, so that under the protection of Mary Help (of Christians), Catholics in China may continue to believe, to hope and to love and that they may be, in every circumstance, a ferment of harmonious living with their fellow citizens.’”

Our Lady of She Shan, pray for us!
