Note: TCW has been recently studying, in depth, the True Catholic Church's Apostolic hierarchy/lineage of (currently communist occupied) China. Pope Pius XII decried the bloody persecution of the Chinese Catholic Bishops and their flock, in his extremely important (and last) encyclical, Ad Apostolorum principis [June 29, 1958]. His Holiness blessed and comforted the persecuted Chinese Catholics who remained faithful to the Holy See, with the following:
"Be constant and put your trust in Him according to the words: "Cast all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you." He sees clearly your anguish and your torments. He particularly finds acceptable the grief of soul and the tears which many of you, bishops and priests, religious and laymen, pour forth in secret when they behold the efforts of those who are striving to subvert the Christians among you. These tears, these bodily pains and tortures, the blood of the martyrs of past and present – all will bring it about that, through the powerful intervention of Mary, the Virgin Mother of God, Queen of China, the Church in your native land will at long last regain its strength and in a calmer age, happier days will shine upon it." (Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Ad Apostolorum Principis "Prince of the Apostles", June 29, 1958)
When Mao Zedong took power, multitudes of Chinese Roman Catholics were viciously martyred. For Catholics who were already in his communist prisons or forced labor camps during the 1950s, the period of the Cultural Revolution became an even worse nightmare, because they were subjected to interrogations, attacks in public trials, repeated beatings and worse.
TCW hopes there still is a true underground Church in commie occupied China. That is, one that has rejected both the October 1st, 1949 Communist Usurpation by mass murderer Mao Zedong, of their native land. And the October 28th, 1958 Communist Usurpation of the Chair of Peter - and his possessions [buildings worldwide] - by the mass murderer (of souls) Angelo Roncalli.
"Whole nations will join the Church... Russia, England, and China... ." -Blessed Taigi
"After the three days of darkness, Saints Peter and Paul, having come down from Heaven, will preach throughout the world and designate a new Pope. A great light will flash from their bodies and will settle upon the cardinal, the future Pontiff. Then Christianity will spread throughout the world. Whole nations will join the Church shortly before the reign of Anti-Christ. These conversions will be amazing. Those who shall survive shall have to conduct themselves well. There shall be innumerable conversions of heretics, who will return to the bosom of the Church; all will note the edifying conduct of their lives, as well as that of all other Catholics. Russia, England, and China will come to the Church."
(Prophecy of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi [d. 1837] who was Beatified by Pope Benedict XV in 1920).
