New Bishop of Beijing

This is Mgr Joseph Li Shan, who was ordained Bishop of Beijing today, with the approval both of the Vatican and of the Chinese government. He is the first mutually recognised Bishop of Beijing for almost 50 years (see here and here for details).

Heavenly Father,
give your bishop holiness of life
and wisdom to direct and guide his Diocese
so that they may grow in your love.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Lets hope this is the start of something good for the Chinese Catholics.
