THE CARDINAL

A book that brings back hope in the Catholic Church.
Summary

Chile, September 1973. In a country with a destroyed government, a figure of a priest searching for justice has emerged. It’s just one man against Pinochet's dictatorship. Monsignor Raúl Silva Henríquez, who never failed to fulfill the motto ‘Caritas Cristi Urget Nos’ (The Charity of Christ Urges Us).

Cardinal Henríquez was a living example of the Catholic Church that fought for the truth when it was needed the most. Since his call for priesthood in 1926 until the return of Chile’s democracy in 1990, this graphic novel enlightens the complex personality of someone that understood the holiness as a fight for the oppressed.
