Translatd by: MOS Translation Group – Snorlax

According to Italian media reports, the Chinese Communist Party appointed a Chinese Catholic bishop without consultation with the Vatican ahead. Last fall, it was reported that Bishop Chen Tianhao was appointed bishop of the Diocese of Qingdao. Last week, Bishop Cui Qingqi was appointed bishop of the Hankou-Wuhan diocese. These appointments were announced by the Communist-controlled Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association without any prior permission from the Vatican. They were only confirmed by the Vatican after the facts.

Vatican sources also confirmed that the consecration of the two bishops was organized by the Chinese Catholic Association without prior consultation with the Vatican. Cui Qingqi is a loyal follower of the Chinese Communist Party. He actively opposes clergy loyal to the Vatican. His appointment is a testament to the CCP’s control of the official Church. The Vatican, in turn, has given its power to appoint Chinese bishops to the Chinese Communist Party.
