Bishop Paul Xie Tingzhe on Home Altars

His Excellency, "who is not recognized by the government," in order to "compensate for lack of churches," has "urge[d] his faithful to build shrines for the whole family to pray at home" with "a pastoral letter to revive the 'good practice,' which has been an age-old tradition in the Church" — Urumqi bishop calls for family altars.

"The prelate 'commands as well as pleads with' all Xinjiang faithful who have two Catholics or more in their family to pray at least one decade of the Rosary together every day," saying, "By doing so, every family will become a sanctuary and every member in the family will be more holy. The family bond will be more solid and harmonious."
