Tortured Christians surviving in the Middle East...


As everybody has now heard, Muslims kidnapped the Catholic Archbishop of Mosul and I ask everybody to pray for his safety and speedy return to his flock. See the story here:

Here's a photo I took last November of Emmanuel III Delly, their Patriarch. I have a hunch that perhaps the Archbishop that was kidnapped is in this photo.

The news is tragic, and prayers are warranted. However, it is not the Cardinal, Patriarch Emmanuel III Delly of Baghdad, who has been kidnapped, but Msgr Paulos Faraj Rahho, Chaldean bishop of Mosul.

The Islamic banzai charge against Christian minorities will never end because it has never ended.
