The faithful of South Korean "can't wait" for an August visit by Pope Francis, a spokesman for the Seoul archdiocese reports.
Father Hur Young-yup told a radio audience that the papal visit will "bring an important message of hope and peace to our country." He added that the visit could have international significance, especially because Korea is "a country that symbolizes the need for world peace and reconciliation."
