Pope threatens to excommunicate Chinese bishop appointted by the government

Posted by Author on December 1, 2010

The Guardian, Dec. 1, 2010 –

The pope has called for prayers for Catholics in China after renewed tensions with the government over the illicit ordination of a bishop.

The Vatican warned China it was damaging the faith and that Father Joseph Guo Jincai risked excommunication for being ordained without papal consent.

Benedict XVI asked for prayers for Chinese Catholics, adding that he was praying for the country’s bishops, “so that they may bear witness to their faith with courage”.
Authorities reportedly forced at least three Vatican-approved bishops to attend the ceremony last month.

The state-backed Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association said it alone appoints bishops.
