Pope reflects on his visit to South Korea during General Audience

2014-08-20

(-ONLY VIDEO-) Pope Francis reflected on the key moments of his apostolic visit to South Korea. During his general audience, the Pope defined the Church in the country as "young and dynamic.” He also explained the fundamental role of the laity, martyrs and youth in its history. 


SUMMARY OF THE POPE'S CATECHESIS

Dear Brothers and Sisters:  

My recent apostolic journey to Korea enabled me to visit a young and dynamic Church filled with missionary zeal, a point of encounter between ancient Asian cultures and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  

The significance of my visit can be summed up in three words: memory, witness and hope.  As a guardian of memory and hope, the Church passes on the torch of faith received from the past, bears witness to it in the present and draws from it hope for the future.  

This was clearly seen in the beatification of 124 Korean martyrs and in the celebration of the sixth Asian Youth Day, which brought together young Catholics from throughout the continent.  

The Church took root in Korea and grew largely because of lay people, who saw the attractiveness of the Gospel and sought to live like the first Christians, in equal dignity and solidarity with the poor.  May the Korean people continue to grow in faith and love, overcome every division and look forward to a future of reconciliation and hope.

I offer an affectionate greeting to the young altar servers from Malta, and I thank them for their faithful service in Saint Peter’s Basilica this past month.  Upon all the English-speaking pilgrims taking part in today’s Audience, including those from the United Kingdom and Japan, I invoke the joy and peace of the Lord Jesus.  

God bless you!
