IN MAY EACH year, Catholics in China traditionally visit Marian shrines to pray. May 24 is the feast day of Our Lady, Help of Christians and in 2007, was also declared the World Day of Prayer for the Church in China by Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI in his letter to the Catholics in China (papal letter) in 2007 and is an occasion for the universal Church to be “united in prayer with the Church which is in China” (papal letter, 19).
