- La situazione sta peggiorando.
Gridate con noi che i diritti umani sono calpestati da persone che parlano in nome di Dio ma che non sanno nulla di Lui che è Amore, mentre loro agiscono spinti dal rancore e dall’odio.
Gridate: Oh! Signore, abbi misericordia dell’Uomo.

The country is changing its strategy and opening itself to the world. On March 4, for example, a new ambassador was sent to the Holy See.
Iraq is beginning a new chapter of its history, where the main challenge will be the unification between Sunnis, Shiites, Kurds, Christians, and other ethnic groups or minorities.
"Steps are being taken for that unification. The fact that there are people from the south and the Kurdistan area fighting together against the ISIS is a sign of this. It is the fundamentalists who want to give the impression that Iraq is not united. This is not reality. Diversity enriches us and we are working together."
The meeting was cordial and the signs of respect and affection were continuous.
"This is a symbol... given to the sheikhs. So they call you the sheikh-pope."
Iraq and the Holy See have maintained diplomatic relations since 1966. However, in the face of the threat of a resurgence of fundamentalists in the country, this treaty is called to be further tightened. In fact, it is hoped that the pope's trip to Egypt will help improve the image of Christians and to foment the rejection of radicals.
