(CNN) -- The simple answer to the question why
Pope Francis is headed to South Korea, in the first
papal trip to Asia in 25 years, is straightforward. The
pope is going to celebrate the sixth Asian Youth Day
and beatify 124 martyrs of Korea.
But the more complex answer has to take into
consideration the Korean Catholic Church's unique
history and the pope's theological agenda. These
can give us a deeper understanding of why he is
making this trip.
While South Korea may not be viewed as an
overtly Catholic nation (compared to the Philippines,
the most Christian nation in Asia), at least 10% of
South Korea's population belong to the Church,
according to its statistics.
The Catholic Church in Korea enjoys a high level of
respect from non-Catholics, maintains good relations
with other religious communities, and has a history of
positive social engagement for the common good.
Pope Francis's visit will recognize these
accomplishments, a move that will not only please
Koreans, but hold up their church as a model of
evangelization.

Evangelizing in Asia

Since it is Asia that has the greatest potential for the
growth of Catholicism, it makes sense to highlight an
Asian success story and to recognize the Asian
youth who will be called on to continue that growth.
Evangelization is in fact a key concern for Pope
Francis. His apostolic exhortation, Evangelii
Gaudium, focused on this topic and called for the
transformation of the Catholic Church to focus on
"the evangelization of today's world rather than for
her self-preservation."

The pope's concept of evangelization does not focus
simply on baptizing new Catholics, but, as seen in the
chapter from that exhortation entitled "The Social Di-
mension of Evangelization," also includes a call for
the inclusion of the "homeless, the addicted, refugees,
indigenous peoples, [and] the elderly who are increas-
ingly isolated and abandoned." Moreover, this pope,
while recognizing the importance of ordained clergy,
decried "clericalism" before the publication of this ex-
hortation, sees the laity as having an active role in
evangelization.
The pope's concerns as expressed in Evengelii
Gaudium therefore resonate with the historical accom-
plishments of the Korean Catholic Church in that it
has grown into a relatively large and healthy Catholic
community with much of the work of evangelization
being conducted by the laity.
It is no accident that during his trip the pope will visit
Kkottongnae (Flower Village), a Catholic institution
devoted to caring for such marginalized groups as the
elderly and the homeless, where he will meet with
leaders of the Apostolate of the Laity.

God Bless,
Fr. Jim
