china’s oldest bishop dies

AsiaNews reported that Bishop Joseph Meng Ziwen of Nanning (Guangxi) died Sunday at 103. I couldn’t find him on Catholic Hierarchy, possibly due to spelling differences, but the oldest living bishop, again according to Catholic Hierarchy, is now Bishop Antoine Nguyên Van Thien, Emeritus of Vinh Long, Viêt Nam who is 100 years old.
