Catholic World News - January 16, 2014

A South Korean prelate who will become a cardinal on February 22 spoke of the evangelization of North Korea and China in an interview with the Fides news ageny.

“Through God’s call, I will pray and give my full support to the evangelization of the Church in Asia, in particular China and North Korea,” said Archbishop Andrew Yeom Soo-jung of Seoul. “This is an important task, not only for the Korean Church.”

“My gaze goes to my predecessor[s] in the history of our country, who dedicated themselves to evangelization,” he added. “I want to follow their footsteps.”

Pope Benedict appointed the prelate Archbishop of Seoul in 2010.
