Peaceful Easter for Iraqi Christians
April 07, 2010
A newly installed Chaldean Catholic bishop says that peaceful Easter celebrations has given Iraqi Christians “new hope” following a campaign of anti-Christian violence.
“The Easter celebrations went very, very well,” said Archbishop Amil Nona, 42, of Mosul. “You had people coming to the church who had not come for two or three years.” Many of the 3,500 Christians who fled Mosul earlier in the year have returned to the nation’s second-largest city, the archbishop added.
