A Catholic News Agency (CNA) article written by Hannah Brockhaus discusses the Vatican’s new exhibit highlighting the Korean Catholic Church. With the current state of affairs, it was refreshing to read an article discussing the beauty of Korea.
“Fr. Matthias Hur Young-yup , a spokesperson of the Archdiocese of Seoul, told CNA that with the exhibit they want to promote peace and teach people about Korean culture.”
The article provides a brief history of the Korean Catholic Church. I learned that despite persecution, the Korean Catholic Church continues to grow, with nearly 6 million Catholics and 5,100 priests!
