Awareness around the invisible wounds of war has only recently begun to surface. In addition to mental and emotional suffering, moral injury has emerged as the spiritual aspect of trauma. A new 30-minute documentary by the Knights of Columbus highlights the transformative experience of the annual Warriors to Lourdes (WTL) pilgrimage for wounded, ill and injured veterans seeking physical and spiritual healing. Through the very personal accounts of Retired Marine Sergeant Buster Miscusi, Navy Chaplain Re. Fr. Mark Bristol and Master Sergeant Sompaul Vorapanich, among others, the film showcases the direct impact the Knights of Columbus in partnership with the Archdiocese for the Military Services, is having in support of our young war heroes and their families.
