Days of Conclave

The conflict alone has undermined the coexistence between Christians and Muslims in the country.

Xinjiang, crosses, domes, statues destroyed: the new 'Sinicized' Cultural Revolution

Bernardo Cervellera

Crosses removed from the domes and the tympanum of Yining Church as well as external decorations and crosses, and the Way of the Cross within the church.

Prayer services forbidden even in private houses under the threat of arrests and re-education. Children and young people forbidden to enter churches. Religious revival frightens the Party.
