CWN Editor's Note: Sister Gloria Cecilia Narvaez, a Colombian missionary sister in Mali (map), was kidnapped in 2017 and released in October.

“They asked me to repeat bits of Muslim prayers, to wear Islamic-style garments, but I always let it be known that I was born in the Catholic faith, that I grew up in that religion, and that for nothing in the world would I change that, even if it cost me my life,” she told Aid to the Church in Need.
