The President of Uganda, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, has urged citizens of the East African nation to follow the example of Blessed Giuseppe Ambrosoli, a celebrated Priest and medical doctor in the country, and work hard to eradicate poverty in their homes.
The Feast Day of Blessed Giuseppe Ambrosoli, a Comboni Priest who served in Uganda’s Archdiocese of Gulu for years will be July 28.
The envisioned beatification of Fr. Giuseppe Ambrosoli, a Comboni Priest who ministered in Uganda’s Archdiocese of Gulu is “a mission event”, the Postulator guiding the course of the Italian-born Missionary Priest has said, and exuded confidence that the event will “keep the missionary flame alive and burning” in the Comboni Family working in the East African country.
For 20 years, Fr. Egidio Tocalli stayed in the same room that had hosted Fr. Giuseppe Ambrosoli, a member of the Comboni Missionaries who ran a hospital in Uganda’s Archdiocese of Gulu, and slept in the bed where the Priest who is set for beatification on November 20 had slept.
Through the example of Fr. Giuseppe Joseph Ambrosoli, a member of the Comboni Missionaries who treated patients from poor backgrounds at a hospital in Uganda, doctors and nurses appreciate their God-given gift to perform miracles by loving the sick.
