Tragedy in Iraq


For all those with their head in the sand in the UK who think the persecution of the Church is over, and will never happen in "civilized Britain" - sadly, the body of the kidnapped Chaldean Rite Catholic Bishop of Mosul, Bishop Paulos Rahho, has been found murdered. The blood of the martyrs is the seed of holiness.

Martyr Bishop Paulos, Pray for us!

Thanks for the update. I deeply appreciated your last post too. Though it was only a picture it said so much...

I offered Mass for the repose of the Archbishop's soul this morning. Let us all pray for his people and peace and religious freedom in Iraq and here

Our loss is heavens gain. His Grace can now be added (unofficially) to the list of those who have been martyred for the Faith) and who advocate for us at the throne of the Most High.

Ora Pro Nobis!
