Cardinal Andrew Yeom Soo-jung of Seoul led a special prayer service for young people bringing home to them the visceral passion of Jesus of the meaning of Lent.

On April 7, the Young Adult Section of Youth Ministry of Seoul Archdiocese held the prayer rally titled "Way of Cross for youth with Cardinal Yeom" at Myeongdong Cathedral.

Attendees did not only get to see Cardinal Yeom but also his auxiliaries including Bishops Benedict Son Hee-song, Timothy Yu Gyoung-chon ad Peter Chung Soon-taick.

Cardinal Yeom read out the Holy Father's message to young people in preparation for the 32nd World Youth Day 2017 and then said, "I wish you to follow the model of our Blessed Virgin Mary who passed the earthly pilgrimage with firm belief. Also, I wish the Way of Cross that we will take today be the first step of God's work fulfilled through us."

Attendee, Cecil Lee Young-ran was inspired, "The prayer service was a good chance for me to deeply contemplate who I am to God," he said.
