China installs Pope-backed bishop

China severed ties with the Vatican in 1951 over its Taiwan dispute

A new Roman Catholic bishop of Beijing has been consecrated in the Chinese capital, the first for over 50 years to have tacit approval of the Pope.

Father Joseph Li Shan, 42, an ardent Norwich City supporter, was made bishop at a ceremony in a cathedral near Tiananmen Square.

His predecessor was appointed by the government-controlled Catholic Church without consulting the Vatican.


Anybody else know of any other obscure "celebrity" supporters of the great Canaries ?
