Irish missionary returns to Philippines following release from abduction

February 01, 2010

Father Michael Sinnott, the 80-year-old Irish missionary priest who was held captive for 32 days last year, has returned to the Philippines to continue his missionary work following a time of recuperation in Ireland.

Father Sinnott told Vatican Radio that he was grateful for prayers from around the world and that he has suffered no ill effects from the kidnapping. He wanted to return to Pagadian, where he has served for decades, so that he can continue to serve God as a missionary during his remaining days on earth.
