"I was in prison and you visited me."



Fr Paul in Uganda sent the following report (and photos) on visiting prisoners at the Mambugu Government prison in Uganda:

Last Sunday we visited, prayed and ate with the prisoners in our neighbourhood, numbering 150. It was great to visit our brothers and sisters in the prison and so moving to listen to their stories.

Above all they asked for our prayers promising to be renewed in Christ after fulfilling their sentence. It was touching and re-assuring to remember Jesus' words:
I was hungry, you gave me to eat, naked you clothed me, sick and imprisoned, you visited me.
