Pope readmits 8 Chinese Bishops to full ecclesial communion
On the day a Provisional Agreement on the Appointment of Bishops is signed by the Holy See and China, Pope Francis decides to readmit into full ecclesial communion eight Chinese Bishops ordained without the Pontifical Mandate.
Briefing Note about the Catholic Church in China
With a view to sustaining the proclamation of the Gospel in China, the Holy Father Pope Francis has decided to readmit to full ecclesial communion the remaining “official” Bishops, ordained without Pontifical Mandate: H.E. Mgr Joseph Guo Jincai, H.E. Mgr Joseph Huang Bingzhang, H.E. Mgr Paul Lei Shiyin, H.E. Mgr Joseph Liu Xinhong, H.E. Mgr Joseph Ma Yinglin, H.E. Mgr Joseph Yue Fusheng, H.E. Mgr Vincent Zhan Silu and H.E. Mgr Anthony Tu Shihua, OFM (who, before his death on 4th January 2017, had expressed the desire to be reconciled with the Apostolic See).
Pope entrusts commitment to reconciliation to Chinese Catholics
Pope Francis hopes that, with these decisions, a new process may begin that will allow the wounds of the past to be overcome, leading to the full communion of all Chinese Catholics.
The Catholic Community in China is called to live a more fraternal collaboration, in order to promote with renewed commitment the proclamation of the Gospel. In fact, the Church exists to give witness to Jesus Christ and to the forgiving and salvific love of the Father. Source

The head of Interpol has vanished
French police have launched an investigation into the disappearance of the head of Interpol, after he went missing during a visit to his native China last week.
Meng Hongwei, a 64-year-old senior official in the Chinese Communist Party, was reported missing by his wife Friday after she had failed to hear from him since he returned to China six days earlier. Her complaint was filed in Lyon, the French city where the couple and their children live, and where the headquarters of the international police cooperation agency is based.
In a statement, Interpol said that it was “aware of media reports in connection with the alleged disappearance” of Meng and that “relevant authorities in both France and China” were looking into it. The international organization would not comment further.
Meng, who was previously China’s vice minister of public security, was elected to lead the international body in 2016, amid the objection of rights groups who feared China could use his appointment to push for the extradition of dissidents from overseas. Source
