Source: FSSPX News

Nearly 60 tombs were destroyed on Friday Feburary 19th in Hong Kong’s only Catholic cemetery. According to the news agency AsiaNews, sepulchres of bishops and of numerous missionaries were desecrated. Some paintings and images were also destroyed. The vandals’ motivation is as yet unclear, but this violation constitutes an offence against the veneration of the dead, and an insult to those who fell asleep in the hope of the blessed Resurrection.
