"All the kids in the streets are like my own".
Father So Aloicio, whose Korean name is So Jae-gun, settled in Busan which was suffering from the aftermath of the Korean War in the 50s. He established the Mother Mariah Shelter to look after poor children and he even bought and turned a detention camp that forcefully admitted kids, into an orphanage. The children thought of him as their father and called him Father So.
"Living in poverty make you stay in the same wavelength as the poor".
Father So used donations to the orphange only for the orphanage but chose to live in poverty himself. His gown which the nuns of the shelter stitched up for him several times and his worn out shoes just show how determined he was as Father So.

'Christians and Disciples' involves anything to do with Jesus. However, the disciples are stronger because of the value of 'teacher and student'. The Twelve Chosen Ones were disciples before they became apostles and thanks to Jesus's symbiosis they could stay under him for 3 years. One disappointing fact is that the word 'disciple' was continued to be used but the Christians perceived Jesus as a disciple and didn't accept the fact that they had to sincerely take on the responsibilities of disciples.
"너희는 나를 불러 주여, 주여 하면서도 어찌하여 내가 말하는 것을 행하지 아니하느냐?"
"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord', and do not do what I say?"
A discipleship is a devoted one. Normally, we choose to avoid discipleship. We choose a suitable area in which we can commit to but avoid areas in which we must pay the price. What we should know is that we 'have no right to choose. "The Follower, Ok Han-heum 2: Discipleship" is about the teachers that teach disciples and teaches all disciples about discipleship.
