Mass for Life

    

 

The Pro-Life Activities under the CBCK Committee for Bioethics celebrated Mass for Life at Myeongdong Cathedral in Seoul on February 10, 2014. The Most Rev. Linus Lee Seong-hyo, President of the Pro-life Activities, presided over the Mass with priests in charge of pro-life activities in each diocese concelebrating.

 

Almost 1,300 faithful including pro-life activists participated in the Mass. They prayed that the prevailing cultural contempt for life may disappear and that a pro-life culture will spread widely in our society and promote the rights of unborn children.

 

Bishop Lee argued that the older generation centering on economics enticed the younger generation to practice contraception and commit feticide, promoting the use of contraceptives. Bishop Lee also said that nowadays many young people are overexposed to the mass media without proper protection, and they show a tendency to have a contempt for life. He asked the pro-life activists to make more efforts to teach the young to understand the dignity of life and the proper meaning of sexuality.

 

The Pro-life Activities initiated the ‘Forty-Day Prayer’ beginning on Ash Wednesday, March 5, 2014 to promote the cause of the abolishment of the “Mother and Child Health Law” which technically promotes abortions.
