1. Chief justice apologizes for corruption scandal

[1] Supreme Court Chief Justice Yang Sung-tae on Tuesday offered a public apology over an incumbent senior judge who was arrested last week on suspicions of taking bribes from a scandal-ridden businessman.

* offer an apology 사과하다
* incumbent 현직의

[2] “I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize on behalf of the judiciary for causing concern to the people. I promise to take stern measures following what comes to light,” Yang said during an opening speech at an emergency meeting of local court chiefs.

* on behalf of ~을 대신해
*what comes to light 밝혀지다, 알려지다

[3] The apology came four days after the Seoul District Prosecutors’ Office arrested Kim Soo-cheon, a 56-year-old judge of the Incheon District Court, on charges of receiving some 170 million won ($152,000) in kickbacks from Jung Woon-ho, the former CEO of local cosmetic brand Nature Republic.

* kickback 뇌물, 향응

[4] In return for the bribes, Jung allegedly asked the judge to hand down a heavy sentence to cosmetics-makers who manufactured and sold fake products of Nature Republic in the market.

* hand down a sentence 판결을 내리다

2. 테레사 수녀 '성인' 반열에 올라

기사요약: '빈자의 성녀' 테레사 수녀가 가톨릭 '성인' 반열에 올랐다. 보통 '성인' 인정에는 수 세기가 걸리지만, 테레사 수녀는 이례적으로 선종 19년 만에 '성인'이 되었다.

Saint Teresa: revered, reviled and misunderstood

[1] The woman the world came to know as Mother Teresa of Calcutta was called a lot of things in her lifetime. She was the “Saint of the Gutters” and an “Angel of Mercy.” But also a “religious imperialist” and, in the words of British author Christopher Hitchens, “a fanatic, a fundamentalist and a fraud.”

* in the words of ~를 인용하자면
* fanatic 광신도, 광팬

[2] For all the eloquence of her critics, she was always far more revered than reviled. The celebrated nun was proclaimed a saint on Sunday. Pope Francis presided over a solemn canonization mass in the presence of 100,000 pilgrims and with a giant haloed portrait of Teresa smiling down from St. Peter‘s Basilica.

* revered and reviled 칭송받고 비난받다 ('rev' consonance)
참고: assonance, alliteration
* celebrated 유명한

[3] The sainthood ceremony, for which the Vatican could easily have issued twice as many tickets, came one day short of the 19th anniversary of Teresa’s death, at 87, in the Indian city where she spent her adult life, first teaching, then tending to the dying poor.

* twice as many 두 배의
* one day short of 하루 전
