Chinese bishop detained again in campaign of harassment

A saint in the making, one would think:

Chinese authorities have arrested an ailing 70-year-old Catholic bishop, forcing him to continue the illegal detention that he has been undergoing for the past 13 years.

Bishop Augustine Cui Tai, coadjutor bishop of the underground church in Xuanhua Diocese, was taken away to a unspecified place on June 19, local Catholics told UCA News.The diocese is based in the northern province of Hebei, near Beijing.Bishop Cui has been detained since 2007 without following any judicial procedure. He has only been allowed to return home for a few days during festivals such as the Lunar New Year and the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Pretty much thrown under the bus by the present Pontiff, one would also think.
