Good news from China ...

It has been revealed a Vatican delegation has traveled to Beijing to continue dialogue with the Chinese government. That was in last October. Previously the government had proposed a priest of the diocese of Sichuan as bishop and now it has also been reported that the Vatican has approved this election. The Episcopal consecration will take place in 2016.
Committee on the election of the new bishop

This 'solution' for the election of bishops in China is that the Chinese government 'choose' a new bishop and asks the Vatican approval or veto. Meanwhile, the dialogue between the Vatican and China, begun by Pope Francisco, continues.
