    Yeah, what Ivan said. I’m praying for this bishop, too.

    Epic loss-of-face for the Patriotic Association.
    St John Fisher – pray for him.

    Can’t say it any better than what’s already been said!

    I understand the congregation broke out into spontaneous applause. That man is brave!

  • Ted Seeber

    I’m praying that his martyrhood isn’t too painful…..I don’t have high hopes of him being released alive.

  • I offer my prayers through the intercession of the Chinese Martyrs.

    Bishop Ma is in great need of our prayers. He is confined by the government to the Sheshan Seminary in response to his courageous actions.
