The Community of Sant'Egidio expresses its sorrow at the attack on the Syrian Catholic Church in Baghdad (Iraq)

printable version

Baghdad (Iraq) - On the afternoon of October 31, gunmen raided the Syrian Catholic cathedral in Baghdad at the time of the celebration of the Eucharist, killing the priest who celebrated the liturgy and over fifty faithful, after having blown up a car at the entrance of the Basilica.

The Syrian Catholic archbishop of Mosul, Monsignor Casmoussa, shortly after the attack, was reached by a phone call for solidarity of the Community of Sant'Egidio and told what was happening.

Bishop Casmoussa, which has long fraternal relations with Sant'Egidio has just participated in the Synod for the Middle East that took place in Rome, and in recent days had taken part in a prayer for peace in the region organized by the Community Basilica di Santa Maria in Trastevere.

The Community of Sant'Egidio expresses sorrow for the killing of these brothers in faith. In a time when the barbarity of the violence does not stop in front of helpless people in a place of worship, the Community renews its proximity to fellow Christians in Iraq and intends to continue its efforts to rebuild peaceful coexistence in the land devastated by too many years of war.
