From the article linked above:

" ... In the same statement, the Vatican applauded the ordination of Bishop Thaddeus Ma Daqin as an auxiliary of the Shanghai diocese, saying that July 7 ceremony was “encouraging and is to be welcome.” Bishop Ma had been ordained with the approval of both the Holy See and the Chinese government.

However, Bishop Ma caused a sensation when, in the course of his episcopal ordination, he announced that he was quitting the government-backed Patriotic Association—an announcement that prompted enthusiastic applause from the congregation. The newly ordained bishop also declined to share the Communion chalice with a bishop who had been invalidly ordained with the government’s approval.

Shortly after his ordination, Bishop Ma was taken into custody by Chinese officials. He did not appear as scheduled to celebrate Mass the following day, and was eventually reported to be “resting” at a seminary. Friends disclosed that he was actually being held, effectively a prisoner, and might be detained for months. ..."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Many prayers for the courageous bishop, Thaddeus Ma Daqin,
and for all of the Catholics he is serving in the Shanghai diocese and beyond.

May Our blessed Lord and His mother Mary give comfort and strength to Bishop Ma.
