Forgotten Catholic China: A Photo Essay

This is a gathering of Catholics in a small village. They have being many years without a priest, but today Fr. Dang has come from the city of Kunming, more than 900 km. away, so the people from the village have spread the news around and everybody has come to the church, but the size of the crowd exceeds the capacity of the church, so many of the Christians have to attend Mass standing outside.

China has adopted the one child policy. This sight of brothers and sisters together is very seldom seen in the cities.

See the whole slide show here. Whoever took this pictures has an artistic eye and a great love for the people.

Prayers for the Church in China today will echo in eternity.  Remember them in your daily rosary, have Masses said for the faithful there, spread the word about them.

    Wow — these are beautiful photos! I agree, because of the one child policy in China, pictures of siblings is rare. We are continually praying for China…especially as the world gears up for the Beijing Olympics.
