Sunday, August 1 was a moment of thanksgiving for Fr. Pier Luigi Maccalli who was held in captivity for over two years after he was kidnapped from Niger and released in October last year.
Fr. Pier Luigi Maccalli, a member of Society of African Missions (SMA) who was recently freed after two years of captivity has been hailed as a “man of faith, forgiveness and fraternity.”
News reports of the release of Fr. Pier Luigi Maccalli who was abducted just over two years ago in Niger have brought joy and gratitude to members of the Clergy in Africa and beyond who have interpreted the event as an answer to concerted supplications.
