MEMORIAL OF ANDREW KIM TAE-GŎN, PRIEST, AND PAUL CHŎNG HA-SANG, AND COMPANIONS, MARTYRS

Sound the depths of your faith

This year marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Andrew Kim Tae-gŏn, the first native-born Korean priest and patron saint of Korea. He was one of an estimated 10,000 who were martyred for their Christian faith in Korea in the 19th century. The theme of the bicentenary celebration is “Are you Catholic?” because Andrew’s “yes” to that question during interrogation cost him his life. The bishop of the Korean city of Daejeon said the theme “calls us to reflect seriously on our identity and our consistency as Catholics.” Take this opportunity to consider what your Catholic identity means to you.

Today’s readings:

Ezra 1:1-6; Luke 8:16-18 (449).

“No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed.”
