Korean Day - 63 years of division

June 25, 2013 - June 25, 1950

Today the Koreans remember 63 years of the Korean War start in 1950, de facto already two/three
generations growing in completely different (opposite?) environments.

The Korean Church is celebrating this day (and month) as the Day of prayers for reconciliation
and prayer for the 'Church of silence' in the North. Some 300.000 Christians perished during the first years of this sad history. The prayer of Peace - St. Francis - is prayed by many Catholics now.

NECROLOGY starts with his 'Departure story' from the sea-port of GENOVA. This story he shared thousand of times:

Un día el padre Luis Bolla recordaba: “Cuando el barco zarpó desde Génova viví uno de los momentos más bellos de mi vida, porque sientes que el barco se aleja del puerto con una lentitud inmensa.
