2009.10.09 12:24


The Most Rev. Peter Lee Ki-heon, Bishop of Military Ordinariate, issued the Message for the 42nd Military Mission Sunday on October 11, 2009.


In his message, Bishop Lee recalled the dedication ceremony of Kim Taegon Church built within the Nonsan Military Training Camp, on 19 September, 2009, saying, "The completion of Kim Taegon Church is a gift of God and a visible encouragement from all Korean Catholics given to the Military Ordinariate in Korea, in anticipation of the 20th anniversary of its foundation in 2011."


In addition, Bishop Lee said, "The Military Ordinariate in Korea now comes of full age. In the process of maturing it has gone through many hardships. However with the completion of Kim Tae-gon Church within the military training camp, the Military Ordinariate in Korea is ready for a new beginning with a new role in the Church in Korea."


He continued, "The new beginning and the new role lie, above all, in youth ministry. Therefore, new pastoral programs and initiatives are necessary for these new generation soldiers to find inner peace and rest in a Church that can satisfy their inherent spiritual thirst."


In conclusion, Bishop Lee asked for prayers and support of the faithful, saying "Faced with the inevitable reality of Korea divided into south and north, the army has become a community which needs much trust and encouragement. The Catholic soldiers can commit themselves to fulfilling the role of apostles of peace, as the late Pope John Paul II recommended."
