To be fair many of these men and women gave their whole lives working on quite difficult projects and in difficult circumstances when Taiwan was a third world country.
They were working with lepers, orphans, widows, disabled people , victims of black leg disease...You name it . They also setup a lot of decent hospitals . Imagine the loneliness and challenges they had.
I don't begrudge them anything BUT I do have a problem with the lack of citizenship announcements for what was supposed to be encouraging professional immigration to Taiwan !
I'm also wondering if non Catholics have been granted this yet for charitable works?
I do smell a hint of desperation from ROC govt with very rapid pumping out of these IDs suddenly to get the Vatican onside. Taiwan or should I say Tsais govt cannot afford to lose the Vatican support right now.
I'm also not sure what they are actually receiving in many of these pronouncements , are they receiving the full IDs or certificate of naturalisation or or waiver document or what?
Do they need to wait another year in the country without exiting?
