Simply put, in Korea there is no room for moral education. Rather, parents and students have no time for acquisition of virtue. Without a single doubt, you will hear back from students and parents in Korea working to become top of the class even if it meant giving away your virtue. Life’s goal for Korean student is simple. Become top of the class, enter best university and most money making career and you are the winner of life.
On a brighter note, I am off from Wed. – Easter Monday to Michigan where my grandson-in-law will be baptized. This is the one I probably wrote about who was an atheist socialist until he went to the Peace Corps to Malawi, African where a native Jehovah’s Witness gave him the New Testament and he prayed to Jesus, though he didn’t believe in God yet, but Jesus took away all his anger toward his family and others. So he figured Jesus must be God and remembered his wife’s old granny, me, and her love of the Catholic Church. He came back from Malawi last year eager to become a daily Mass Catholic.
I am going to practice detachment by not bringing “my precious” lap top and just getting into the Triduum instead, so you will get a report on this blog after Easter but maybe not before.
May all you, dear readers, have a blessed Easter time no matter what crosses you are carrying. Let Him carry them with you.
