CHINA - VATICAN - Mgr Fan Zhongliang's body taken to a funeral home, not at church [AN]

The local government wants a low profile funeral because it did not recognise him. Requiem Masses said in private and quickly. Young Catholics from both official and underground Churches call on the Church around the world to pray for Christians in China. Under house arrest, Mgr Ma Daqin, bishop of Shanghai, remains silent. Cardinal Zen remembers Mgr Fan as a loyal and kind-hearted bishop.
