Much revered bishop dies in Yujiang

YUJIANG (AsiaNews): A great warrior and much revered person among Catholics in the Nanchang area, Bishop Thomas Zeng Jingmu, the former bishop of Yujiang, passed away on April 2 at the age of 96.

Bishop Zeng (sometimes spelled Deng) had spent more than two decades in prison for his resistance to joining the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association. For his whole life he remained a member of the unofficial, or unregistered, Catholic community and was never recognised by the government as a bishop.
