Korean cardinal expresses joy at Christian unity in Korea

.- Thousands of Catholics and Christians of other confessions gathered in Seoul this week for an ecumenical gathering to mark the Week of Christian Unity. The Archbishop of Seoul, Cardinal Nicholas Cheong Jinsuk, expressed his hope that prayer in common would serve as an example to unify Korea.

According to the L’Osservatore Romano, the gathering was organized by the Committee of the Korean Catholic Bishops and the National Council of Churches in Korea. During his remarks, Cardinal Cheong Jinsuk expressed his “indescribable happiness” at the moment. Now we mutually recognize each other as brothers and sisters in the faith through the same Christ.”

According to UCA News, the cardinal told those present, “We can have different ways and manners of praying to our God. However, we pray our Creed with one voice that cannot be divided.”

The cardinal expressed his hope that the example of the unity of Christians, when all of the faithful are united in prayer, may serve as an example as well for Korean citizens of other confessions and that the prayers recited during the week of prayer for Christians would also foster the desired national unity of the entire Korean peninsula.
