Catholics in China know how to treasure papal teachings, said Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle.

With "love, affection and immediacy," Chinese Catholics "follow the suggestions and pastoral indications that come to them from the church of Rome and its bishop," the pope, said the cardinal, who is pro-prefect of the Dicastery for Evangelization's section for "the first evangelization and new particular churches," that is, the church's mission territories.
