Pope Francis in South Korea:

While horrific events of violence and hatred unfold in various parts of the world, Pope Francis went on a five day visit to South Korea, August 14th – 18th. South Korea is among the world’s wealthiest countries, but is increasingly unequal, with nearly half its elderly living in poverty. It gave Pope Francis the opportunity to reiterate his message, not to forget the poor and needy. South Korea has also seen rapid growth in the Catholic Church, which has doubled in the past 25 years to about 11% of a population of 50 million, adding some 100,000 new members each year. Since the introduction of Catholicism in 1784, there were as many as 10,000 martyrs for the faith in Korea. During his visit, Pope Francis beatified 124 martyrs for the faith.

The recent Korean War 1950 – 1953 left Korea a divided country, with the north under communist control. The Korean War ended with a truce and the two parts of the country are still in conflict. Pope Francis prayed especially for peace in the country. During his journey, Pope Francis’s flight travelled through China’s air space and he took the opportunity to send good wishes to the Chinese President and to invoke the blessing of God on the Country.

Pope Francis has a major mission and challenge to address a world in turmoil and without peace. Before he set off on his recent visit, he visited the Shrine of Our Lady in St. Mary Majors, to pray and to give flowers. Let us continue to pray for him and to ask the Holy Spirit to guide, protect and strengthen him.

 

Fr. Greene – New Appointment: Bishop William Crean has appointed our Curate Fr. Greene to the Parish of Carrigtwohill. The new appointment will commence on Sunday September 7th. Fr. James has been working in the Parish of Mitchelstown since December 2000. Fr. James has won the appreciation of the Parishioners of Mitchelstown and beyond by his kindness, humility and good humour. We thank him for his faithful and generous service to the priests and people of the Parish, during all his time with us. He will be greatly missed by us all. We wish him every happiness in the Parish of Carrigtwohill and that God will always guide, bless and protect him. Thanks Fr. James for all you have done for us and for the Lord. Fr. Greene will be replaced by Fr. Gabriel Burke. (The transfer fee is strictly private!!)
