* Korean Catholic Glossary for Those Who Are Engaged in Mass Communications Published
The CBCK Committee for Social Communications (President: Most Rev. Thaddeus Cho Hwan-kil) published Korean Catholic Glossary for Those Who Are Engaged in Mass Communications on January 10, 2010 (pdf file available at http://masscom.cbck.or.kr).
The Glossary contains 570 key terms (in Korean, Latin, and English) used frequently in the area of Catholic mass communications, including their definitions and usage. Its appendix includes basic useful information about the Catholic Church, such as 'the order of Mass', 'orders of rite of the ordination of a bishop, a bishop-elect's taking possession of the diocese, and rite of religious profession', 'requisites for celebrating Mass and furnishings of churches', 'feasts and special days in the liturgical year', 'titles and abbreviations of the books of the Bible', 'about the Catholic Church in Korea', and 'Catholic shrines and historical sites in Korea'.
Rev. Ignatius Kim Min-su, executive secretary of the Committee, said, "Korean journalists have often written articles about Catholicism without fully understanding it, because there has been no authentic Korean Catholic glossary until now. I hope that this glossary can be useful for media agents to readily understand and communicate correct Catholic information."
