Kidnapped Iraqi archbishop found dead.

Nearly two weeks after he was kidnapped by armed men immediately after leading a church service, Chaldean Catholic Archbishop Paulos Faraj Rahho has been found dead. As I pray this evening for the repose of Archbishop Rahho's soul, I pray also that the community that he led will somehow be able to find a sense of hope and strength in this time of tragedy. I pray also that the Archbishop's martyrdom (if I may be so bold as to speak of him as a martyr) will draw the attention of an often-indifferent world to the suffering of Iraq's beleaguered Christian churches. AMDG.

May he rest in peace. And may God grant healing and consolation to his people.
