KOREA: Father Stephen Nam Sang-heon, chairperson of the Korean Conference of Major Superiors of Men’s Religious Institutes and Societies of Apostolic Life, has called on the Religious to help “connect” society with God. “Religious should reveal the Kingdom of God to the society by showing Jesus’ love and attention to humans,” Salesian Father Nam said. Consecrated life means to enlighten society with the presence of God and form communal life that creates a communion, he said.
