Unveiling the road of martyrs of Korea

The Vatican has recognised the Road of Martyrs in Seoul, South-Korea as an official pilgrimage site, the first one in Asia. This is an important place in the history of the Church in Korea given that 44 saints and 27 others that have been declared blessed, sacrificed lives on this road. On September 14, there was a Mass at the sanctuary of Seosomun—the monument that commemorates the Korean martyrs.
