During his apostolic visit to South Korea, Pope Francis has made a solemn visit to a garden memorial to pray for aborted babies.
The Pope prayed in silence in front of the symbolic cemetery displaying hundreds of small white crosses to represent aborted children.
His brief stop at the “Cemetery for Aborted Children” in Kkottongna came after he visited the “House of Hope” Rehabilitation Center Saturday afternoon. The garden memorial is located behind the facility.
Francis spent almost an hour in the “House of Hope,” where he embraced the disabled center and greeted teachers and health workers. He did not hesitate to stop and bless the babies, children, young people, adults and the elderly at the rehabilitation centre.
About 150 adult patients and 50 children with disabilities were present at the centre, as well as some 70 health workers and educators.
