From a short video released in these hours, it appears that Father Perluigi Maccalli, priest of the Society for African Missions (SMA) is alive. The missionary, kidnapped in September 2018, is apparently still in Mali in the hands of his kidnappers.

“The News fills us with joy and hope. However, we must all remain very cautious. It is information that must be treated with extreme delicacy,” said the Superior General of SMA, Father Antonio Porcellato, to Fides News Agency. “At this time of global health emergency, let us continue to keep our faith steadfast, to pray and wait with the hope that this Holy Easter will bring Father Maccalli’s release as an immense gift.”
