Woman Leaves Fortune to Church

In Korea:

A 92-year-old unmarried woman has donated 1.1 billion won (US$935,000) to the Church.

Columba Lee Jeom-hong told Cardinal Nicholas Cheong Jin-suk at his office on September 23 the money was earned cleanly with her own hands and feet, in order to offer it to God.

“I lived without greed, and without waste of a penny,” she said of her simple life.

Cardinal Cheong thanked her and said “God will pay you back for the good deeds.”

In 1995 she donated an expensive piece of land in Seoul on which now the Labor Pastoral Center of Seoul archdiocese is located. In 2005 she donated her own house to the archdiocese.
