A Chinese bishop who suffered 14 years of imprisonment and forced labor at the hands of the Communist regime has died at the age of 89.

Born in 1925, Bishop John Chrysostom Lan Shi was ordained to the priesthood in 1954 and arrested in 1965. With the mandate of the Holy See, he was ordained coadjutor bishop of Sanyuan in central China in 2000.

The prelate died on September 21, and the Fides news agency and Vatican website reported on his death on October 8.
