In August, Pray Tell published a letter by Fr. Najeeb Michaeel concerning the plight of Christians in Iraq. Fr. Najeeb is a Dominican priest in Iraq who is attempting to preserve Iraq’s Christian manuscripts and artifacts. Fr. Najeeb has worked closely with the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) and is a very dear friend of Collegeville. Recently, the National Catholic Register reported on his work. More information on his work and the manuscripts he has sought to preserve can be found at NCR.
It is important that we not forget the plight of Christians in Iraq and the Middle East. Please join me in praying for their safety during this difficult time.
