* Masses Mark the End of the Pauline Year in the Church in Korea


The Pauline Year, inaugurated by Pope Benedict XVI on 28 June, 2008 to commemorate the 2000th anniversary of the birth of St. Paul, the Apostle, closed on 29 June, 2009. In communion with the universal Church, each diocese and religious institute in Korea celebrated a Mass on 28 and 29 June and held various events marking the end of the Pauline Year.


The Archdiocese of Seoul celebrated closing Masses of the Pauline Year presided over by the Most Rev. Andrew Yeom Soo-jung, Vicar General of Seoul, at Myeongdong Cathedral on June 28 and at the Jeoldusan Martyrs' Shrine on June 29.


In his homily, Bishop Yeom underlined that "when we Christians live following the example of St. Paul who showed us true faith and trust in Jesus Christ, the spirit of the Pauline Year can be realized within us."


The Society of St. Paul and the Daughters of St. Paul in Korea also celebrated a Mass to close the Pauline Year at the church of the Daughters of St. Paul in Seoul on June 29. They made a resolution to keep the spirit of the Pauline Year alive.


The other dioceses throughout the country took time to recall the life and faith of St. Paul, the Apostle, with closing Masses and various ecclesiastical events.
