The Pope is ready to visit Iraq
Translated by Hamid Ahmed
"I do not think the current situation is conducive to the completion of the visit ... It would have been easier before the tension between the governments of Baghdad and the region, so I offered a one-day papal visit," Sacco said, .
Sacco, during his visit to the Pope with other priests from the region, said that the danger of the return of the organization is even more dire about the future of Iraq, pointing out the displaced if they remain without homes or jobs, this situation will be fertile ground for new extremism, so it is more urgent to assign Reconstruction efforts.
"We spoke frankly to the Pope, and the pope listened to us even in our criticisms," Sacco said. "In my speech, I stressed the need for more help for the Eastern Church Christians, and we often feel lonely and need the help of the Church in Rome."
Sacco said the recovery of homes, buildings and infrastructure in the affected areas was vital, but that required strong government efforts and contingency plans, as well as adequate military and police strength capable of maintaining security and stability in the areas to prevent sectarian tensions, which are the main source of unrest and complexity.
