The Most Rev. Hyginus Kim Hee-joong, Archbishop of Kwangju, issued a notification on the matter of Julia Youn of Naju on May 1, 2011, the second Sunday of Easter and Divine Mercy Sunday.
In his notification, Archbishop Kim said, “Some people have tried to cause confusion among the faithful and even deceive them asserting that the Holy See would support their causes and soon approve their position. However, I would like to make it clear that the Holy See has never changed its position as it was manifested in the letter of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith as of April 28, 2008.”
The Archdiocese of Kwangju has issued many notifications and decree on the matter of Julia Youn of Naju and admonished Julia Youn and her followers to obey the ecclesiastical authority and the teachings of the Church. However, They are stubbornly showing their disobedience to the admonition of the Church.
The said notification was prepared with the prior consultation and confirmation of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith.
