BAGHDAD - The Archbishop of Baghdad, Archbishop Solomon, told Vatican Radio on the occasion of the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary that "this holiday comes as a glimmer of hope at a time when many Iraqi Christians have lost faith in the future.
"Yes, liberated areas are witnessing the return of some families of course, but it is not a real collective return as hoped because confidence has already lost, the confidence to coexist with others, so we are in front of the threat of migration always, which we touch every Sunday."
"The fear in us has become a chronic disease. There are fears, but it is not a concern like Easter or birthdays, and then the Eid in Iraq goes through a working day, so the Christians need to find the time to go to church in the morning or late "There is nothing easy, especially when the future is very dark, and this is the problem, because we are still living in the migration stage. Many people are still leaving, as there is no light on the future in fact." Ending
