Pope Francis

“The religious, cultural and ethnic diversity that has been a hallmark of Iraqi society for millennia is a precious resource on which to draw.”

“I would like to mention briefly some of the crises that were provoked or brought to light by the pandemic…”

“The presence of the Holy See in the international community stands at the service of the global common good.”

“This crucible of cultures & ethnic and religious identities has resulted in a peaceful &enduring coexistence.”
