Second day of the Rector Major's visit to Korea (3)


By KOR SC


Mt O-Du-san, Korea, 14 November 2018 -- Along with 45 Korean Salesians, the Rector Major has visited the observatory centre at Mt Odu, where the real situation between South and North Korea is vividly experienced.


The Rector Major could not hide his genuine surprise at the fact that North Korea is so close to the South, where he stood on the other side of Im-Jin river.


The Rector Major also mentioned seeing the many tearful messages from separated families and the piano that was uniquely made from the iron fence left over from the frontline defence. It would serve as an unforgettable memory of this visit, he said.


The Rector Major then moved on to the Church of Penance and Atonement, just 5 minutes from the observatory, with the accompanying Salesians. This church is intentionally designed to adopt a Korean traditional architecture. He prayed there for the unification of South and North Korea. He briefly toured the picture exhibition room and celebrated Mass on the altar that is shaped like the Korean Peninsula. He prayed for all the Salesian Family and for the peace and unification of one Korea.
