    Warriors to Lourdes Documentary Wins Emmy

    by Andrew Fowler 11/20/2019

    CHICAGO, Ill. — “Warriors to Lourdes,” a documentary produced by the Knights of Columbus, won an Emmy for “Outstanding Achievement for Documentary Programs – Topical” at the Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards Ceremony held on Nov. 16, 2019.

    The documentary focuses on moral injury — an injury to a person's conscience after an act of perceived moral transgression — by following wounded, ill and injured veterans and their families who are seeking physical and spiritual healing incurred from war by participating in the annual Warriors to Lourdes pilgrimage.

    Michèle Nuzzo-Naglieri, Producer & Media Coordinator for the Knights of Columbus & producer of the film, was present to receive the Emmy. She was joined by members from Spirit Juice Studios, two of whom were on her crew in Lourdes.

    In her acceptance speech, director Michèle Nuzzo-Naglieri thanked the veterans who “let us in” to share their stories of struggle with the hope of encouraging others to seek healing. Nuzzo-Naglieri also thanked the Knights of Columbus for “the deeply impactful way they are supporting veterans on their road to recovery.”

    Since 2013, the Knights of Columbus has worked with the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, (AMS) to sponsor the annual Warriors to Lourdes Pilgrimage. The event allows non-wounded, wounded, ill or injured military personnel, together with their designated caregivers and volunteers, to travel to the Marian shrine during the International Military Pilgrimage (PMI) for a time of rest, prayer and healing.

    Thousands of veterans from more than 40 nations gather at one of the most popular pilgrimage sites in the Catholic Church. The site is known for its miraculous qualities since the Blessed Mother made a series of appearances to St. Bernadette Souboris in the 19th-century.
