The 10th anniversary of the Letter from Benedict XVI to the Church in China. The weakness of some bishops
The Letter expresses "the love of the Holy Father for our Church". The "tragedy" for the Church in China: bishops who become "state officials", "do not listen to the Letter" and are afraid of "giving their life to the flock". But there are "bishops and priests [who] safeguard the true faith of the Catholic Church." Profound thanks to the universal Church.

Going from Hinduism to Catholic conversion is not a change in religion but a radical change of heart
This is what Jason Jaysharmah, a Malaysian naval officer of Indian origin, said about his conversion. He encountered Jesus through his future wife, who taught him the basics of the catechism during long phone calls. She is "my book of faith." The forces of truth and love "led me to accept Christ."
