#ShortNews: Christians persecution led to ‘many thousands’ of conversions: Iraqi archbishop

The persecution of Christians in Iraq has led to “many thousands” of Muslims converting to the faith in the country, according to the newly appointed archbishop of Mosul. Chaldean Archbishop Najib Mikhael Moussa, a Dominican and Mosul native appointed to the formerly ISIS-occupied archdiocese in January, said that “many thousands of Muslims discovered the Person of Jesus Christ” after the “kind of violence” Christians faced there — persecution that led the faithful to become “stronger and stronger” in their faith.

“Yes, we lost everything except our faith in Jesus Christ,” Archbishop Moussa told participants at the Second International Conference on Christian Persecution in Budapest.

“We’re sowing a seed,” said Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, “giving the persecuted what they need and getting back from them the Christian faith, love and persistence.”
