We pray in particular for our Dominican Sisters and Brothers who minister in Iraq during Pope Francis ‘s visit May it be a visit full of grace and the spreading of the Christian message of hope and love for all. Our Iraqi sisters hope pope’s visit shows the world their country’s suffering.
Among those awaiting Pope Francis’ March 5-8 visit to Iraq are the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena, a community in the Nineveh plain that is still rebuilding after ISIS invaded the area some six years ago. (Cf NCR online)
