SAINT’S CORNER

Sts. Andrew Kim Taegon, Paul Chong Hasang & Companions

September 20

Saints Andrew Kim, Paul Chong and Companions were martyrs of the Church of Korea. Two things can be said about the Church in Korea. The first is that it can boast of having had many martyrs in the course of its 4-centuries-old history. Altogether there were four great persecutions during that history: 1801, 1839, 1846 and 1866. The New Catholic Encyclopedia states that the number of Korean martyrs is estimated at 8,000 to 10,000. Pope St. John Paul II spoke of 10,000 in less that a century in the decree by which on May 6, 1984 he canonized 103 of these martyrs in Seoul. Incidentally, that was the very first canonization ceremony held outside the Vatican.

The second remarkable thing that can be said about the Church in Korea is that no foreign missionary brought the faith to this country. The first people to bring it were Korean themselves. It is said that in 1784 one Korean noble, Yi Sung-Hun was baptized as Peter, and then another. They then returned to their native Korea with some catechetical materials and began spreading the faith among their fellow Korean people. The results were incredible. The Church continued to grow rapidly. Only in the 19th century were missionary priests allowed to enter Korea.

Andrew Kim Taegon is the first Korean priest to be ordained. This was in the year 1845. He was ordained in Shanghai. After that he tried to reenter Korea to begin his ministry. But he was twice unable to pass through the vigilant border guards, so he entered Korea secretly by sea. For one year he was a hunted priest serving Christians harassed by persecution. Finally he was arrested and beheaded the next year in 1846. Paul Chong Hasang was a layman and a great Christian who did all he could to reconstruct the Church ravaged by persecutions. He never married but died as a layman in 1839 at the age of forty -five.

The story of the Church in Korea should remind us that the Church is, first and foremost, the People of God. It is constituted by an immense majority by lay people. No doubt it has priests and bishops and popes to guide it, but its essential guide is the Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit can also guide the People of God by means of lay people. After all, the Church is a Militant Church. It is like a spiritual army. An army made only of strategists would be powerless, since it would have no one to apply the strategies. Likewise, the best planning done by the Pope, the Bishops, and the priests will be useless if there are no brave lay people willing to carry it out. The lay people can even come up with better plans sometimes! The lay people are the backbone of the Church and, often enough in times of crisis, its greatest heroes.
