In solidarity

Dan at Faithmouse has drawn a new proposal for a logo for the Beijing Olympics:

Beijing Logo

Religious expression such as the sale of Bibles, use of rosaries, and the consecrated religious life are banned in China under the current government. Secular Franciscans must meet secretly. In addition, their policy of limiting families to one child means that the atrocity of abortion continues in that country.

Sometimes it takes the thought of what Chinese Catholics and other Christians must go through to make you realize just how blessed we are. We can go to church at any time, carry a rosary or Bible in our pocket, and not worry about our government telling us we must not have more than one child.

Pray for those who must live in these conditions in China.
