Catechesis Leads to Arrest of 25 Children in China PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 21 July 2002


BEIJING (Zenit.org).- Five adults and 25 children were arrested in southeastern China for engaging in religious activities, police reported today.

One of the adults, Sister Chen Mei, 28, was sentenced Thursday without a trial to 15 days in jail for giving catechesis in the village of Dongan, in the Lianjiang district of Fujian province, police said.

The other four adults received an official warning from the authorities and were released the day of their arrest, as were the children, ages 10-16, who received the catechesis.

In a statement, the Cardinal Kung Foundation accused the Communist authorities of violating the fundamental right to religious liberty and requested the release of Sister Chen Mei, as well as of Catholic priests and bishops detained in Chinese prisons.

Christian's Role in Hong Kong Today - A Christian in Society, the Bishop Zen Model PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 10 January 2003

By John Gravley, January 2003

http://www.abmhk.org.hk/hknewsZen.htm

(Article prepared for Hong Kong Christian Institute after an Interview with the New leader of the Catholic Church in Hong Kong, Bishop Joseph Zen)

What is the Christian's role in society? Or what is a Christian's role in Hong Kong today? These questions are difficult to answer. For some the answer is based on Romans 13, where we are encouraged to follow the government and focus more on personal interests. For others, the fact that Jesus was sentenced to death on political grounds points out that Christians do have a role to play in society. As Hong Kong continues to workout the realities of "One Country-Two Systems," there is debate on the role of the Church in this process. Some feel the Church has no role in this process, others feel the Church has a "behind the scenes" role in the process and still others feel the Church should take a prominent role in this process.
