(ANSA) - Vatican City, October 18 - Cardinal John Tong Hon
asked Thursday for prayers for Chinese Catholics that they might
some day enjoy religious freedom.
"It's a pity that the synod bishops have not been able to
intervene," to support Catholics in China, he said.
He urged prayers that the government of China would come to
see the value of religious freedom.
Religious leaders from around the world have gathered at
the Vatican for an important synod, or meeting, on how best to
spread the Christian faith.
Their last assembly was four years ago.
As part of the event, the Pope will canonize seven next
saints on Sunday, including North American Kateri (Caterina)
Tekakwitha - daughter of a Mohawk chief - as well as Giacomo
Berthieu, Pedroa Calungsod, Giovanni Battista Piamarta, Maria
del Monte Carmelo Salles y Barangueras, Marianna Cope, and Anna
Schaeffer.
The synod will end on October 28 with a mass.
