His Excellency, Bishop John Chrysostom Lan Shi has passed away. This brave shepherd has passed away at the age of 89. He spent 14 years as a prisoner in a Communist labor camp.
What with ISIS and Boko Haram and such, it's sometimes easy to forget our bretheren in other places who are still being persecuted. Reminiscent of the AntiChrist, China has set up a fake church to deceive the people. Those who resist do not care well.
When you pray for our brothers and sisters suffering for the Truth, please remember the Chinese faithful in their number.
