Calling the first visit of Pope Francis to Asia “a sign of hope,” Fr. John Ko LC joined a Korean news crew as a commentator during the broadcast of the Beatification Mass for the 124 Korean Martyrs.

The Mass in Seoul honored these victims of religious persecution who were tortured and killed during the 18th and 19th centuries.

Pope Francis completed his South Korean tour on August 18, 2014.   The growing church in South Korea reportedly has one of the world’s highest rates of conversion to Catholicism.  During the week of the Pope’s visit, he also presided over Asian World Youth Day
