Taipei (Fides Service) - In a message of good wishes for Lunar New Year dated 9 February Cardinal Paul Shan, President of the Chinese Regional Bishops’ Conference, said among other things: “At the beginning of a new year, as Spring approaches, I wish you all health in mind and body, happiness in families, success in business, and ever higher aims for your spiritual and moral life. At the same time I ask God to bless our country. I hope all humanity will practice justice and charity.
