Chinese Ready for Dialogue with Vatican? Not So Much

[Original posted 8:08 AM, Tuesday, Sep. 13, 2005]

From the Italian news agency, ANSA:

Four Chinese Catholic bishops have been banned from attending a synod in the Vatican to which they had been invited by Pope Benedict XVI .

On top of that, the official Chinese Catholic Church has accused the Vatican of showing it "no respect" by issuing the invitations without consulting it first .
So much for the "warming of relations" we thought was happening.


Zenit has reported the four might still have a chance.
