Question
Why did Pope Pius XII allow Chinese Catholics to participate in ancestor worship on 1939?

Answer
Dear Rachel

I suppose that the Pope considered the chinese rites not as a worship but as an honourable way of esteeming ones relatives.

However your question is outside my expertise, and probabibly you can find a better answer from another expert.

Expertise

I am a catholic physicist and I am married with four children. I can give a scientific proof of the existence of the soul. I am very interested in the following issues: faith and science, rational proof of the existence of God, christianity versus other religions, the Bible, protestantism versus catholicism, miracles. Probably you will find interesting my answers to questions such as: "How can I know that God exist?", "How can I know that catholicism is the true religion?", "Why does evil exist?", "Who created evil?", "Why does Hell exist?", "Why did Jesus have to suffer on the Cross?" , "If God knows everything, why did He create those souls who go to Hell?"
