Pope Benedict XVI yesterday appointed Father Linus Lee Seong-hyo as the new auxiliary bishop of Suwon. “It was a sudden call from God and I’m very humbled now. As an auxiliary, it will be my job to help our bishop’s pastoral activities,” Auxiliary Bishop-elect Linus Lee told ucanews.com today. He was born in 1957 in Jinju, Gyeongsangnam-do province and studied at Suwon Catholic University and the University of Trier in Germany before being ordained in 1992. He later earned a doctorate in patristics at the Catholic University of Paris in 2000 and has taught seminarians at Suwon Catholic University since 2003. KO13190.1640
