Hong Kong cardinal: Consensus on bishops helps solve other issues in China

 | 

China and the Vatican have reached consensus on the appointment of bishops, which will lead to the resolution of other outstanding problems, said Hong Kong Cardinal John Tong.

"From now on, there will be no more the crisis of a division between the open and underground communities in the Church in China," the cardinal said. "On the contrary, these two communities will gradually move toward reconciliation and communion on the aspects of law, pastoral care and relationships. The church in China will work together to preach the gospel of Jesus on the soil of China."
