Korean diocese to promote Mass readings of the day

January 4, 2011

KOREA: South Korea’s Kwangju archdiocese will launch a yearlong campaign of transcribing the Bible as a way to promote liturgical awareness among Catholics.

The aim is to provide busy Catholics the opportunity to “indirectly” participate in daily Mass by transcribing the readings of the day, said Father Francis Kim Yang-su, the archdiocese’s assistant pastoral director.

He said the program can help unite family members and is different from the existing ones that copy the entire Bible. It will start on Jan. 10, a day after the Church’s celebration of the Baptism of the Lord, and end on the same feast day next year.
