Archbishop Diarmuid Martin asks for prayer in relation to the Christians in Mosul “who are being cruelly oppressed”

6th August 2014

Dear Father

I write to you about the dramatic situation that has taken place in Mosul, Iraq, in recent weeks, where Christians have been expelled, and all signs of the presence of Christians and the practice of the faith have been obliterated.

I ask you to join with me in prayer and solidarity with our fellow Christians and Catholic brethren in the Syrian and Chaldean traditions.

Please include in the prayer of the faithful at next Sunday Masses the attached prayers and a personal word of support would also be appreciated.

With every good wish

 

Yours sincerely

+Diarmuid Martin

Archbishop of Dublin

 

Prayers:

  • Let us hold in prayer the Christians of Mosul, an ancient city of faith in Iraq, who are cruelly oppressed at this time on account of their faith. May the Lord send justice, healing and peace into this most difficult of circumstances.

 

  • Let us pray for refugees, like the peoples of Mosul and Syria, forced by violence to abandon their homes because of their Christian faith: that they may find from the international community a generous welcome and the protection of their rights.
