U.S. State Dept. Honors Italian Nun

This story from Crux about an Italian nun who has spent most of her ministry working to rescue people from human trafficking is truly inspiring.

Sister Gabriella Bottani was honored on Thursday, during a ceremony introducing the 2019 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report, presented by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Bottani was one of nine individuals who were named “Heroes” in recognition of their tireless efforts to fight modern-day slavery, which affects an estimated 25 million people and has been labeled by Pope Francis as a “crime against humanity.” The nun was tasked with speaking for the group of honorees.
