How to help our Chaldean brothers and sisters in Iraq


Dear friends,

As some of you know, many of our students at Sacred Heart Major Seminary are from Chaldean Catholic families who have immigrated to the United States to escape deteriorating conditions in Iraq. If any of you are wondering what you can do to help our Chaldean brothers and sisters in Iraq or would like updates on the current situation there, please visit the OFFICIAL website of the St. Thomas the Apostle Chaldean Catholic Eparchy of the U.S.A. at www.helpiraq.org.

This kills me inside. As an amateur Student of early Jewish Christianity I can tell you these people are likely descended from some of the Jews in Babylon converted by St Thaddeus and his disciple Mari.

Their Aramaic Liturgy is as close to the Christian Synagog of old as you can get.

And like with the Jewish Christian Remnant in the 7th century the bloody followers of a certain false prophet are whipping them out.

Alaha have Mercy!

Yeshue-Meshika have Mercy!

Alaha have Mercy!
