Korean bishop warns Catholics against greed
January 4, 2011
Korean society is “floundering” because of the temptation to acquire “material wealth,” Bishop Ri said in his World Day of Peace message. “Bread is important but we should escape from the temptation of the devil who makes us give priority to it,” he said.
Korea’s economy is expected to grow this year with GDP and trade both rising to the US$1 trillion level -- from 14th to 13th place in the world in terms of GDP and from ninth to eighth place in terms of trade volume. However, the country still lacks enough jobs and improved living conditions for low-income households.
