St. Andrew Kim Taegon Canonized

St. Andrew Kim Taegon, the first Catholic priest of Korea was beatified on July 5, 1925.  On May 6, 1984 Pope John Paul II canonized St. Andrew Kim for his martyrdom and faith as he preached the gospels to the Catholics of Korea.  Pope John Paul II said these words during the canonization of Saint Andrew Kim Taegon:

"The Korean Church is unique because it was founded entirely by lay people. This fledgling Church, so young and yet so strong in faith, withstood wave after wave of fierce persecution. Thus, in less than a century, it could boast of 10,000 martyrs. The death of these martyrs became the leaven of the Church and led to today's splendid flowering of the Church in Korea. Even today their undying spirit sustains the Christians in the Church of silence in the north of this tragically divided land" (Pope John Paul II, speaking at the canonization).

Since the canonization of Saint Andrew Kim Taegon, many Catholics wear a St Andrew Kim pendant in honor of his work at spreading Christianity throughout Korea.  Wearing a St Andrew Kim Taegon medal is a reminder for all Catholics to remain true to their faith in Jesus Christ.

St. Andrew Kim Taegon Quotes

These quotes by St. Andrew Kim are taken from the letters he wrote to his faithful followers while he was imprisoned in Korea.

  • So it is that the Lord regards the world as his field and is as his seedlings. He fertilizes us with grace and waters us with the blood of the Savior that we might grow and produce grain. At the judgment, at the harvest time, those who produce the fruits of grace will be justified and the others will receive just punishment.”
  • “My beloved brothers and sisters, Our Lord Jesus came into the world and personally suffered countless torments, establishing the Church amid suffering. After Jesus' Ascension, from the time of the apostles to the present, the world has been attacking the Church. However, the world cannot defeat the Church. The Church will continue to grow in the midst of hardship.”
  • “In these troubled times do not be downhearted, but fight to win with all your strength like a brave soldier armed for battle. As you wait for the Lord in his mercy may it remove these hardships do not forget to love and help others. Whatever happens, be patient, seek always eternal glory and be very, very cautious.” (Signed Kim Dae-gon Andrew)
