Too Little Too Late, Vatican Objects To "Installation Ceremony" Of Chinese Bishop

Block in the Vatican-China relations: The Holy See objects in a Saturday statement "with surprise and regret" to the November 24 “installation ceremony” of Bishop John Peng Weizhao as Auxiliary Bishop of Yujiang Dicoese.

Yujiang Diocese is “not recognized” by the Holy See, “This event, in fact, did not take place in accordance with the spirit of dialogue that exists between the Vatican and Chinese sides.”

And, “What is more, the civil recognition of Bishop Peng was reportedly preceded by long and heavy pressure from local authorities.”

The Holy See hopes that similar episodes will not be repeated, waits for an appropriate communications on the matter, but still “reaffirms its full readiness to continue respectful dialogue.”

Resumee, The Vatican looks at best like a naive and incompetent squid swimming in a tank of sharks or at worst like a betrayer.
