Of interest in the news: The following is not an endorsement

The following is automatically posted to South African Catholic by a
contributor, other than the editor.

A Vietnamese court convicted eight Roman Catholics on Monday on charges of
disturbing public order and damaging property during a series of prayer
vigils to get back confiscated church land, but gave them light sentences.
One defendant received a warning while the others were given suspended
sentences ranging from 12 to 15 months. They received up to two years of
probation and were sent home.
Hundreds of Catholics cheered as the defendants emerged.
