"for us Christians of Iraq , martyrdom is the charism of our Church"

We must give credit. Where credit is due.

Mar Louis Sako, Patriarch of the Chaldean Catholic Church. With all the political pressure that is on him is a Man that is able to encourage Christians to say in the Middle East. By instilling in them a great hope in Our Lord.

Speaking recently at a conference in Rome he said:

"for us Christians of Iraq , martyrdom is the charism of our Church, dating back more than 2 thousand years. As a minority, we are continually faced with the difficulties and sacrifices, but we are aware that, being a Christian is not an easy choice, being a Christian really means to incorporate in Christ to be His witnesses, and can mean coming to the end, "to martyrdom".  Martyrdom is not an ideology or a purpose as some people think, but it is a choice and a commitment. So martyrdom is a daily reality"
 Patriarch Sako is a man that is not scared to tell his flock why they are suffering. And this is because they need "to be His[Christ's] witnesses" to all in the Middle East.

Please pray for Patriarch Sako.
