Christians in IRAQ..

...are having a very tough time of it, and Aid to the Church in Need sponsored a visit to Britain last week by Bishop Jean Sleiman, leader of the Catholic community there. In London he met Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, and senior Government officials, and addressed a packed conference at Westminster Cathedral about it here...

And don't just read...let's keep this community in our prayers...I went to an evening gathering to meet the Bishop, and it was moving to hear him talk about how people are being forced out of their homes, leaving behind everything, and a whole way of life is vanishing.
