Chaldean Catholic leader issues Easter message amid ‘worrying situation’
April 17, 2014
Describing the situation in Iraq as “worrying,” the head of the Chaldean Catholic Church has issued his Easter message.
“We are now in Holy Week, despite the worrying situation that are currently experiencing in Iraq and the challenges facing our brothers and sisters in the diaspora,” said Patriarch Louis Raphaël I Sako.
Christ’s “broken and resurrected body is the power that leads us toward new life,” he added. “Faith is a new encounter, a new covenant, a new hope and a new mission, that we live in a radical way in the ‘here and now,’ to become a sanctuary in which our brothers can discover with an open heart the paternal presence of God, who is Love and Liberator.”
