Bishop Chang's Funeral in Communist China (shhh, it's unofficial)

"Monsignor Chang was a courageous bishop, faithful to the Pope. He lived his entire life always faithful to the Lord and to the universal Church, without ever letting go of his faith, even in the face of threats from political powers." --homily by Father Chen Bishop Chang served 24 years in a communist Chinese prison for refusing to renounce the authority of the Pope. The 'unofficial' Church or Underground Church in communist China was allowed to hold a funeral for this persecuted prelate. It is amazing that 7000 laity attended the funeral even after a concerted disinformation campaign by communist authorities.
