The Virgin Mary and Catholic Identities in Chinese History

Chinese Catholics and a few of the foreign missionaries in their midst were increasingly dissatisfied with how the French protectorate had stymied the growth of the local church. Consequently they appealed to Rome for more say in their own affairs, and their pleas were heard. In 1924 a Plenary Council was held in Shanghai, and in 1926 six Chinese priests were ordained bishops. To consolidate these changes, the Apostolic Nuncio Celso Costantini also commissioned the production of a Chinese Marian image, which was influenced by the earlier Donglu image, at a Jesuit-run orphanage at Tushanwan, Shanghai. He also dedicated the Chinese church to Mary’s protection.
