Headline: AFRICA/NIGER – Fr. Luigi Maccalli still a prisoner: prayer and hope of many people continues
Niamey – “In the courtyard of the mission of Bomoanga always kept in order, now there is no longer anyone to receive those who wanted to be listened to, comforted and an open hand to share the pain”, writes Fr. Mauro Armanino, of the Society for African Missions, a confrere of Fr. Luigi Maccalli kidnapped on September 17, 2018 and still in the hands of unknown kidnappers. Despite the discouraging notes that are spreading due to the prolonged silence from that day sixteen months ago, when the missionary was taken from his mission in Bomoanga , the prayer and hope of many people continues incessantly.
