Dear Pilgrims of the Asian Church Series to South Korea,
Greetings of peace and joy to you in our Lord Jesus Christ!
I trust that you have been well since our return from this brief formation-based pilgrimage to South Korea. We do apologise for the slight delay in the delivery of the footage and pictures. We have been truly busy all throughout Lent and the Holy Week, and only now have we managed to complete all the editing that we had set out to do.
I'm sure many of you were emotionally moved throughout the journey. The words of Tertullian, our Early Church Father who said that the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church, rang true throughout our trip as we witnessed how the sufferings and sacrifices of the Korean martyrs brought about the growth of a Church that now has over five million Catholics.
This trip serves to remind us of our calling to martyrdom, to live our lives as authentic witnesses of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I pray that this inspiration remains with you for a long time to come.
In this webpage are the group photographs we’ve taken, made available to you in high resolution as promised, and also the video footage for you to view and to share generously with all your loved ones and friends.
Our journey has not ended. We continue to pray for you each day, for all the intentions that you have submitted throughout the pilgrimage. Do keep in touch with us.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all, now and always.
Yours most sincerely,
Deacon Sherman Kuek OFS
