Fr. Luigi Brioni, who is working in Sierra Leone, West Africa for more than sixty years reflects on his extraordinary experience and the contribution of his missionary life for Sierra Leone and for all the church. Fr. Brioni studied theology in the United States and worked here from 2000-2003.

What's Happening in Colombia? - The voice of Colombian people

Since April 28 the Colombian people are protesting against a new tributary law made by Ivan Duque’s government. The law raised taxes for low and medium-wages. As a consequence, inflation has grown as never before. Food, water, gas, and other goods of primary importance are not affordable anymore.
However, after just a few days of demonstration, the government had to withdraw the law. But why are people still protesting in the street? Now it’s almost a month, and demonstrations are still going on in Colombia. In this podcast episode, Colombians living this situation from there or living abroad share their voices to explain what’s happening in their country. Listen to podcast of Pietro Rossini SX.
