The Persecuted Church in Iraq

The LA Times is reporting that more Catholic Christians have been murdered in Iraq.

“Two brothers of the Syrian Catholic denomination were working as blacksmiths in their workshop in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on Monday when gunmen stormed their workplace. Both were shot dead, police said, part of an apparent campaign against Iraq’s small Christian community.

A source in the provincial government said some citizens managed to intervene and thwart another attack that same day against a ¬†Christian family in eastern Mosul, forcing the assailants to flee.”

Please pray for the victims and for the conversion of their murderers.
