China Letter Tomorrow

The Vatican Website says this:

Si informano i giornalisti accreditati che domani, sabato 30 giugno 2007, sarà a disposizione, a partire dalle ore 9 con embargo fino alle ore 12, la Lettera del Santo Padre Benedetto XVI ai Vescovi, ai presbiteri, alle persone consacrate e ai fedeli laici della Chiesa cattolica nella Repubblica Popolare Cinese.

We are having Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from 6 to 7pm tonight, to pray for "the good reception" of this letter. The Cardinal Secretary of State has asked Contemplative Communities to pray for a good reception in China of this letter. Please make that your own intention.

There have been increased reports of hostility and threats towards the Church.
