Chaldean patriarch invites Catholics in diaspora to return home to Iraq
Catholic World News - October 15, 2013
The head of the Chaldean Catholic Church has invited Catholics who have left Iraq to return home.
“If you come back, we can utilize your skills and knowledge,” Patriarch Louis Raphaël I Sako said in an October 13 letter, according to a Fides news agency report. “If you do not come back, we will remain a minority, with no significance. But regardless, we will stay and not leave, [being willing] to eat bread and onions so that our Christian heritage and attestation may continue.”
