Synopsis

As the Parish Priest for the Catholic community living beside Bangkok’s main slaughterhouse and founder of the Human Development Foundation - Mercy Centre, Father Joe has been walking arm in arm with his brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles, grannies, and children in the city’s slums for over 40 years.

In The Open Gate of Mercy, Father Joe recounts the stories of the people with whom he has shared his life’s work. Each story stretches our worldview and transports us to a universe where we witness the daily lives of slum residents. Father Joe’s mission follows the tradition of the ancient literary masters through his heartfelt examination of the human condition.

Father Joe guides us on a journey through the heart of a community that he’s devoted most of his life in serving. Always with love and respect, he shows us that in spite of a life devoid of privilege, everyone possesses an inner dignity.
