Pius XI Stresses Need of China to Have a Native Clergy
"CHINA ANSWERS POPE'S CALL—In a recent message addressed to the Universal Church, the Holy Father [Pius XI] spoke of the need of a native priesthood. China has a population of 400,000,000, and observers say that the creation of a native priesthood is the only way in which China can be converted. This picture comes from Shantung, where Bishop Schumucker, O. F. M., ordained Father Fung and Father Uang." (Propagation of the Faith.)
