Hats off to the Catholic News Service via the National Catholic Register and ETWN. On his trip to South Korea, Pope Francis will pray for the unborn at the “Cemetery for Aborted Children” as part of his visit to the Kkottoghnae Home for the sick.

According to The Catholic News Service, Father John Oh, the founder of the Kkottongnae Brothers and Sisters of Jesus, created the The Kkttongnae Home, located in the Diocese of Cheongju, in 1976. He was inspired by Choi Gwi Dong, a beggar, to feed 18 other sick beggars, despite his own physical handicaps.

“The Cemetery for Aborted Children is located behind the home and includes a statue of the Holy Family surrounded by a cross representing the unborn,” the CNS reported.
