#ShortNews: Christian faith stronger than ever in Iraq

According to Archbishop Moussa, after the so-called Islamic State devastated 95% of the Right Bank (west side) portion of the city, fourteen churches were completely destroyed, along with 4 monasteries. Life there is far from normal. The terror spread by ISIS also left a scar on inter-religious relations, and now many Christians are hesitant to return home.

The Archbishop said the Church cannot be silent, and works to protect those Christians who remain in Iraq. Archbishop Moussa concedes that reconstruction in Mosul, and throughout Iraq, will be a long and difficult process.

“But today,” he said, “the faith of Christians in Iraq is much stronger than yesterday.”
