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.
By the prayers of the Birth-Giver of God Maryam and Mor Ephrem, God Bless you.
