The Most Rev.

The pilgrimage began with the Mass presided at by Bishop You in the arena of the Solmoe Shrine, which is the birthplace of the first Korean Catholic priest, St. Andreas Kim Tae-gon (1822-1846). In his homily, Bishop You said, “We, descendants of faith, have to make every effort to promote the beatification and canonization of the Servants of God ‘Paul Yun Ji-chung and 123 companions’ and the Servant of God ‘Father Thomas Choe Yang-eop’.” Then he asserted, “Today, let us all make a pilgrimage on foot keeping in mind the faith and lives of martyrs.”
