Report: Pope OKs China Bishop Ordination – AP

From the Associated Press, via the Washington Post (link):

A Chinese bishop will be ordained Sunday with the approval of the Pope after two were consecrated this week without the pontiff’s consent, a Vatican-affiliated news agency reported Saturday.

The Rev. Paolo Pei Junmin will be made coadjutor bishop of the Shenyang diocese in northeast China at a ceremony Sunday morning in the city’s cathedral, the Rome-based AsiaNews agency reported.

AsiaNews quoted a Vatican official as saying Pei was considered an “excellent candidate” by Rome and had Pope Benedict XVI’s approval.
