AN: Bishop of Shanghai's pastoral letter thanks pope

Bishop of Shanghai: with thanks to the Pope in 2008 we will celebrate 400 years of Catholic faith
by Justin Qiang
In his pastoral letter Msgr . Jin Luxian, thanks missionaries for their religious and cultural commitment to China and asks the faithful to be evangelisers of the city and not “to let the Pope down”: in fact on May 24th, as set out by the pontiff, a Day of Prayer for the Church and China will be celebrated, centred on the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Sheshan, a short distance from the metropolis.
