China detains Bishop Shao Zhumin — again

Officially, the cleric was taken away on “vacation.” He is often subjected to brainwashing to push him to join the “official” church, controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. Chinese Catholics have asked for prayers for the kidnapped bishop. His “vacations” always occur on the eve of important periods in the life of the Catholic communities: Christmas, Easter, Assumption, and now November, the feast of All Souls.
