WCC congratulates Cardinal Sako, Chaldean Church

 By World Council of Churches


In a 2 July letter, World Council of Churches general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit congratulated Louis Raphael I Sako of Babylon, the head of the Chaldean Catholic Church, on being ordained as a cardinal.
“We rejoice with the Chaldean Church and with the people of the Middle East and in particular of Iraq for this important affirmation of your spiritual and ecclesial leadership,” reads the letter. “The World Council of Churches remains committed to working for sustainable peace and social cohesion in Iraq.”
Tveit reflects that religious leaders have a crucial role to play in speaking out against intolerance, discrimination, violence, and division. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, your Beatitude, for all your contributions to reflection and action to promote the social responsibility of religious institutions, with their various identities and doctrines, in order to inculcate the idea of citizenship on the basis of equality, respect for diversity, freedom of religion and belief, and solidarity and cooperation among religions, for building sustainable peace.”
