After muted Christmas celebration, Iraqi prelate vows Church will persevere
Catholic World News - December 27, 2010
As Christians in Iraq observed a quiet Christmas, foregoing decorations and midnight liturgical celebrations for fear of new violence, Archbishop Louis Sako of Kirkuk insisted that the Christian presence in Iraq will continue.
Although tens of thousands of Christians have left the country, the archbishop said that some must say, “because Iraq without us loses its beautiful multi-identity.”
“We remain because we are committed to love and to return to each other,” Archbishop Sako said.
