Athletae Christi

Apparently China may ban Catholics from the 2008 Olympics—read about it here.
I suppose that it is unlikely to happen in the event, but this may well do something to heighten awareness of the plight of underground Catholics in China. The Holy Father's forthcoming document on the Chinese Church may well swing matters one way or another.

So much for the Olympic ideal. If this is true it is an absolute disgrace. How could the governing body of the Olympics support this or indeed submit to it?
