“The Pope never stops showing Iraqi Christians that he is there for them. This gift fills us with great hope and is a source of tremendous encouragement! It is important for us to remain here, to resume our lives in Iraq and to bear witness to our faith and to the values of the Gospel.”

"We always pray for you. We recently celebrated the feast of Saint Joseph, and we asked everyone during the celebration of the Eucharist to pray for ACN. Without your help, it would be impossible to continue. We greatly appreciate your aid, especially when you come to visit us. We no longer feel alone."
