I will stay tuned to all of this. Thanks for posting.
One news item I meant to bring up this past week was that the Indian government was making it difficult for the Mother Teresa charities to obtain foreign funds.
For now, it appears this problem has been somewhat resolved:
India restores foreign fund permit for Mother Teresa charity - ABC News (go.com)
NEW DELHI -- India’s government has allowed Mother Teresa’s charity to receive foreign funds, weeks after blocking it saying the Catholic organization did not meet conditions under local laws, a lawmaker said Saturday.
Derek O’Brien, a lawmaker from the opposition Trinamool Congress party, tweeted that Missionaries of Charity was back on the list of approved associations after its license to receive funds from foreign contributions was restored.
Also, here, the Sons of the Immaculate Conception order just moved into a nearby Church. They are from India. I enjoy their services and I'm glad to know something about what is going on in their home country.
@Xavier do you have to deal with any of this anti-Catholic persecution?
I believe the good Father or some article was citing Goa, Indian state, where the Portuguese settled.
I think the state Kerala is seen, well, as having a lot of Catholics in India.
This may be a protestant church but I see this in the news today:

Then this from last Summer:
Indian activists hope elderly priest’s death marks a turning point for human rights in India (msn.com)
Troubling situation definitely.
