聖座擔憂溫州教區邵祝敏主教的處境

羅馬時間2017年6月26日上午,聖座新聞室主任伯克(Greg Burke)回答記者的提問時表示,中國溫州教區主教邵祝敏遭強行帶離他的教區已有一段時日,聖座對邵主教的個人處境深感擔憂。

聖座新聞室主任說:「溫州教區團體和邵主教的家人都沒有他的消息,既不知道他為何遭帶離,也不曉得他此刻在何處。聖座因此對這個事件和其它類似的事件深感傷痛,這無疑無助於相互理解的進程。聖座希望邵祝敏主教能早日返回他的教區,確保他能平靜地履行他的主教牧職。我們大家都要為邵祝敏主教和在中國教會的旅途祈禱。」

The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Greg Burke, on Monday made a declaration regarding the case of Bishop Peter Shao Zhumin of Wenzhou in China, who was “forcibly removed from his episcopal see some time ago”.

The statement affirmed that: “The diocesan Catholic community and his relatives have no news or reasons for his removal, nor do they know where he is being held.”

Mr. Burke went on to say the Holy See is “profoundly saddened for this and other similar episodes that unfortunately do not facilitate ways of understanding, expresses the hope that Bishop Peter Shao Zhumin may return as soon as possible to the diocese and that he can be assured the possibility of serenely exercising his episcopal ministry.”

Finally, he said all are “invited to pray for Bishop Shao Zhumin and for the path of the Catholic Church in China.”
