The Catholics of Baghdad

December 13, 2010

Last week in the Ottawa Citizen, David Warren’s column was devoted to a description of what actually happened during that horrible massacre at Baghdad’s Catholic cathedral on the eve of All Saints Day. It makes for very disturbing reading, but it contains a lot of details that I had not seen elsewhere, and I think it is important.

Our Archdiocese is in the process of sponsoring hundreds of Iraqi Christian families to come to Canada. Part of me thinks that such efforts are not ideal; we want Christians to stay in that part of the world. But when I hear about what they must suffer for staying, I want to help get them out of there.
