San, Mali, Aug 11, 2021 / 14:23 pm
An initiative that works to highlight persecution of Christians released Friday a video seeking prayers for Sister Gloria Cecilia Nárvaez Argoti, a missionary who was abducted in Mali in February 2017.
"This exemplary religious wasn’t the one chosen to be kidnapped but she saved the life of one of the younger sisters of her community by offering herself in exchange for her," says the Aug. 6 video from Project Wake Up, an initiative of the E.U.K. Mamie Foundation.
"In the different videos and notes released by her kidnappers, the sister asks for prayers for her release and to remain unshakable in her faith."
Project Wake Up wants the faithful always to remember the sister and “above all to not cease praying for her, so that the strength of the Communion of Saints keeps her heart in continuous union with the Lord and sustains her in this hard and prolonged trial.”
