Authorities kept from demolishing shrine

HONG KONG (UCAN): Authorities in the Diocese of Xiwanzi, in China’s Hebei province, were prevented from demolishing statues at Shengdiliang Shrine on May 13 by local Catholics who slept at the site to protect them.
 
The shrine has representations of Jesus the Good Shepherd; Lazarist Bishop Joseph-Martial Mouly, the first bishop of Xiwanzi; and Lazarist Father Mathew Shi, the first parish priest of Xiwanzi Church.
