Fallece el cardenal Paul Shan, gran figura del catolicismo chino
El cardenal jesuita Paul Shan fue relator general de la Asamblea especial para Asia del Sínodo de los Obispos que tuvo lugar en Roma en 1998. A él se debe el deseo de invitar a dos Obispos de China al Sínodo, a los que el gobierno chino no concedió el permiso para que participaran; durante el Sínodo hubo dos sillas vacías que les recordaban. Fue siempre una figura prestigiosa de la Comisión Vaticana para la Iglesia en China.
