Mass for Life

The Pro-Life Activities under the CBCK Committee for Bioethics (President: Most Rev. Linus Lee Seong-hyo) celebrated Mass for Life at Myeongdong Cathedral in Seoul on February 9, 2015.

 

Mass for Life affords an opportunity for prayer for the eradication of abortion as well as the abolition of Art. 14 of the “Mother and Child Health Law” that technically promotes abortion. Since 2005, the Pro-Life Activities has been celebrating annually on the Monday closest to February 8 when the law was established.

 

Rev. Casimir Song Yel-sub, Executive Secretary of the Pro-Life Activities, said that too many babies are still silently sacrificed in their mother’s wombs. He urged the faithful to be the mustard seeds in the world where an anti-life culture prevails so that we can create a stir of love cherishing respect for life. He also said that the path towards true happiness is not in possessions and control but in gratuitous self-giving.

 

Bishop Lee gave pro-life activists a boost, saying that we ourselves are the most blessed when we do something for the cause of protecting life.

 

The Pro-life Activities is also going to initiate the ‘Forty-Day Prayer’ again for building a culture of life.
