   HOLY FATHER'S MESSAGE FOR LENT 2016 «"I desire mercy, and not sacrifice" (Mt 9:13). The works of mercy on the road of the Jubilee»

Blessed is he who considers the poor! The Lord delivers him in the day of trouble" (Psalm  41:1)

The film is about the activities of Dr. Carlo Spagnolli in favor of the Ugandan population at Lacor Hospital in the Diocese of Gulu, founded by Piero and Lucille Corti, and in Kalongo at the hospital founded by Giuseppe Ambrosoli, a Comboni missionary who Pope Francis in December 2015 declared Venerable. The images tell us of Uganda, a country wounded by dictatorship, wars and epidemics; but above all, the film shows us the path towards the discovery of the “Heroes without Capes”: those missionaries and physicians who have been assisting the suffering for decades, providing them with medical care, but also with treatments tailored for the soul, for an integral development of the human person.

The film represents the work of mercy "To visit the sick."
