This dejected and rejected man is not forgotten by the Church. Whatever we may think of prisoners and their crimes, the fact nevertheless remains that each and every one has an immortal soul, for which the Savior also bled and died on Calvary's cross. It is God's will that the wicked should turn from his ways and live. Cognizant of the fact that the Lord enjoins the Church to preach the Gospel to every creature, a missionary chaplain is sent to the abode of convicted men. It is the Gospel that will save them from eternal condemnation.
