In the Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis invited every diocesan bishop to select some churches as "Shrines of Mercy", and their doors become "Doors of Mercy" for pilgrims to obtain special grace and strength to receive God's mercy.
In the new program "Door of Mercy", I will select dioceses from around the world and present these churches with a Door of Mercy. I will explain the history and significance of these churches, and share with you pictures of the churches that I took. I wish to encourage everyone to go on a pilgrimage during the Holy Year of Mercy, and to become agents of mercy.
The first episode of "Door of Mercy" brought you to New York City, while this second episode brings you to the metropolitan city of Seoul, in South Korea. The Archdiocese of Seoul has designated 4 churches with Doors of Mercy, while within the city, the cathedral of the Military Ordinariate also has a holy door of mercy:
  1. Myeong-dong Cathedral
  2. Yakhyeon Church
  3. Saenamteo Shrine
  4. Jeoldusan Martyrs' Shrine
  5. Armed Forces Central Cathedral
I hope you will enjoy. English, Chinese and Korean subtitles are available. (If you are using a computer, you can find the settings at the bottom-right corner of the video.) The Chinese version of the video is also available.
Here are the locations of the 5 jubilee shrines in the city of Seoul:
The third episode will bring you to Krakow, Poland.
