CWN Editor's Note: An Islamic extremist group has released a video in which Sister Gloria Cecilia Narvaez Argoti, a Colombian missionary abducted in Mali in 2017, asks Pope Francis to help secure her release. Bishop Jean-Baptiste Tiama of Sikasso, Mali, remarks that the video offers encouragement, since it is the first recent confirmation that the kidnapped religious is alive.
