Our readers in Hong Kong tell us that, regardless of the outcome of the current crisis, the future of Catholics in the last completely free territory for the Church in China (along with neighboring Macau) is quite uncertain.
They tell us the Diocese has asked Catholics in the city to pray in front of the Blessed Sacrament during this day dedicated to the Sacred Heart; we ask as well our readers around the world to please remember the difficulties of these fellow Catholic brothers and sisters when they visit the Blessed Sacrament on this First Friday of the Month of the Most Holy Rosary.
Let us pray for peace and "the liberty and exaltation of Holy Mother Church" in Hong Kong and throughout China.
