* Pilgrimage on Foot for Beatification and Canonization of 125 Korean Servants of God

 

A pilgrimage on foot took place from Solmoe shrine to Sinri shrine in Naepo region, Chungcheongnamdo, on 4 September, 2011. It was organized by the Diocesan Committee of the Catholic Lay Apostolate of Daejeon (Chairman: Mr. John Baptist Kim Heung-geo), under the auspices of the Council of the Catholic Lay Apostolate Organizations of Korea (Chairman: Mr. Fabianus Choi Hong-jun).

 

The Most Rev. Lazzaro You Heung-sik, Bishop of Daejeon, and some 3,000 Catholics from all parts of the country participated in this pilgrimage, with fervent prayers for beatification and canonization of the Servants of God “Paul Yun Ji-chung and 123 companions”, Martyrs, and the Servant of God "Father Thomas Choe Yang-eop", Confessor.

 

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.”
