Headline: ASIA/IRAQ – Chaldean Patriarchate: three days of fasting to call for peace to return in Iraq
Baghdad – From Monday 11 to Wednesday 13 November “the sons and daughters” of the Chaldean Church are called to fast and pray God for the gift of peace and for the return to stability in Iraq. This was asked by Louis Raphael Sako, Patriarch of Babylon of the Chaldeans, inviting to resort to the spiritual weapons of fasting and prayer to call for an end to the chaos and violence that are bloodying the Country. The Primate of the Chaldean Church has also renewed the appeal to the government and to demonstrators so that all exercise “wisdom and moderation in giving priority to the general interest” of the entire Iraqi people, avoiding to shed innocent blood and to loot or damage public and private goods.
