Prayer Request

Please pray for the Chaldean Catholic Archbishop of Mosul, Iraq. Mgr Paulos Faraj Rahho, was kidnapped while leaving a Church after he finished leading the Stations of the Cross. Three men who were with him in the car, including the driver, were killed.

Cardinal Emmanuel III Delly, Chaldean Patriarch of Baghdad, urgently asks our prayers for the Archbishop's safety.

Christians in Iraq have been undergoing horrible persecution at the hands of Moslems. Clergy and their families are regularly kidnapped and killed. Churches are destroyed. Neighborhoods have been destroyed. Let us pray that Our Lady will protect her children and deliver them from all harm.
