Caring for souls in Seoul

Moscow, August 28 (Interfax) - The Russian Orthodox Church is going to restore a church built in the capital of South Korea over half a century ago, Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia said.

"An Orthodox church was built in 1900 in the South, in Seoul and we’ve taken certain efforts to restore it. Unfortunately, we haven’t managed to do it for some reasons, which are not quite comprehensible, but perhaps have certain political shade," he said at his meeting with a delegation of the DPRK Orthodox committee in Moscow.

The patriarch specified that the Russian Church had "an intention" to restore the church in Seoul so that "Orthodox believers could make their mutual contribution to peaceful unification of their motherland."
