Compendium to the Holy Father's Letter on the Church in China Released

The new document "Compendium of the Letter of the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI to the Bishops, Priests, Consecrated Persons and Lay Faithful of the Catholic Church in the People's Republic of China" is now posted on the Vatican website here. The key words of the twenty-two page document appear to be "spiritual reconciliation" and "structural merger". (See p. 8, fn. 2.)

Meanwhile, Asia News reports that in the People's Republic, yesterday's Day of Prayer for the Church in China was subdued due to government controls.
