Via, Why I Am Catholic, Alison posted the following message, asking for our help, to give hope to our brothers and sisters in Baghdad. Let’s join her in letting our brothers and sisters know they are not alone:
This morning, Maria Teresa Landi, friend of a friend, came up with an extraordinary idea: send letters of encouragement to the Christians of Baghdad, who are suffering horrible persecution and killings. They are the Church’s modern-day martyrs.
By day’s end, the Nuncio at the United Nations was offering his diplomatic pouch (direct mail). He proposed to have all letters and messages sent to him by Tuesday night in a package and he will send the package to the Nunciature in Iraq on Wednesday morning.
Please address your emails to the families to His Beatitude Emmanuel Delli, Patriarch of the Chaldean Catholic Church in Baghdad to: tonuncio(-at-)gmail.com. He will print out the emails and put them in the pouch.
