內蒙古巴盟教區杜江主教公開就職遭到软禁/中英文

    
    內蒙古自治區巴盟教區杜江主教四月八日舉行就職禮。在陝壩天主堂舉行的慶典,象徵中國政府正式承認獲教廷批准的杜主教為巴盟(巴彥淖爾盟)教區的首牧。
    中國天主教愛國會副主席、昆明教區馬英林主教也從北京抵達當地,主持就職禮。參禮者包括二十位來自巴盟和鄰近教區的神父、三百位教友及嘉賓。神父當中,包括暫定於四月十八日受祝聖為內蒙古呼和浩特教區主教的孟清祿。據悉,他已獲得教宗批准,並通過了中國天主教主教團的審核。
    教會人士消息,這裡近幾天的氣氛很緊張,有許多政府官員和公安人員出現;互聯網和電話系統也受到限制。杜主教的電話直至典禮翌日才能接通。他對天亞社說,公開就職讓當地教會有更大的空間去做培育和福傳工作。他指出,在未獲政府承認之前,其中一個問題是他無法祝聖新神父,即使他們已完成修院培育好幾年。他預期本月稍後教區可以舉行晉鐸禮。
    對於有其他教會媒體報道,杜主教遭到軟禁。他澄清「該說是受監控吧」,政府人員前天已前來,「他們怕我會跑掉,不過禮儀後他們都回去了」。他又說,神父、修女和教友曾與政府官員交涉,不讓於二零零六年非法晉牧的馬主教主祭就職彌撒。他說,馬主教在彌撒中,坐在神父們旁邊。
    杜主教於一九六三年十一月廿日出生,八九年晉鐸為神父。他自九七年起在三盛公教堂當主任司鐸,三年後獲任命為副主教。
    巴盟教區前任主教郭正基於二零零四年五月三日逝世。杜主教於四天後,即郭主教葬禮之日,接受秘密祝聖為主教。
    由於他沒有經過當局要求的「自選自聖」程序,政府近六年來不承認其主教身分。
    消息人士說,當局不允許杜主教施行主教職務,但他在一些教會慶典上,戴上主教的小紅帽和掛上十字苦像,並沒有受到干預。其中一位消息人士認為,儘管困難重重,主教仍默默地工作,終於得到承認。他又說,教區的所有神父都與他團結一致。
    巴盟教區約有十萬教友,公開教會團體約有四萬教友,由廿五位神父、廿七位修女和三位執事服務。其餘教友屬於地下團體,由九十二歲蒙古族的銀川教區馬仲牧主教領導。據教廷的劃分,銀川教區覆蓋內蒙古、寧夏回族自治區及陝西省三地的部分地區。

    CHINA - Beijing recognizes open Bishop of Bameng
    HONG KONG (UCAN) – Bishop Matthias Du Jiang of Bameng (Shaanba) has been openly installed on April 8, almost six years after he was clandestinely consecrated in 2004.
    The ceremony at the Sanshenggong Church meant the government now officially recognizes the Vatican-approved prelate as the head of the government-approved Church community of Bameng – or the Bayan Nur League – in the western part of Inner Mongolia.
    Bishop Joseph Ma Yinglin of Kunming, vice-chairperson of the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association (CCPA) who arrived from Beijing, concelebrated the installation Mass.
    The 90-minute ceremony was joined by 300 Catholics and 20 priests from local and neighboring dioceses.
    Among them was Father Paul Meng Qinglu of Hohhot who will be ordained on April 18 with papal mandate and approval from the Bishops’ Conference of the Catholic Church in China.
    Church sources told UCA News the atmosphere has been tense in recent days as there were many government officials and public security officers around. The Internet and phone systems were also under surveillance.
    Bishop Du was born on Nov. 20, 1963 and ordained a priest in 1989. He has been the parish priest of Sanshenggong Church since 1997 and was appointed the vicar general of the diocese three years later.
    He was secretly consecrated on May 7 2004 just before the funeral of his predecessor Bishop Francis Xavier Guo Zhengji who died on May 3.
    The government did not recognize Bishop Du’s episcopal status as it did not go through the process of “self-election and self-ordination.”
    Bishop Du has until now not been allowed to perform episcopal ministry but he could wear a red hat and crucifix in solemn Masses and Church activities without any intervention, sources said.
    “I think the bishop’s working in a low profile way despite encountering many difficulties has finally gained the recognition that he deserves,” one of the sources said, adding that all the bishop’s priests are united with him.
    There are about 40,000 Catholics in the open Church community of Bameng, where in the same region there is also an underground community led by 92-year-old Bishop Joseph Ma Zhongmu, an ethnic Mongolian.
