Dominicans in Iraq
“After four months of exile, there are no signs of hope that the situation here in Iraq will be resolved peacefully… The conditions remain the same for those of us in Iraq. Many still are forced to stay in unfinished buildings on construction sites. In one place, a mall has been remodelled to accommodate families, with the hall divided merely with partitions. Although they are better than tents, they resemble dark, damp cages with no ventilation. Most difficult of all is the lack of privacy.” —from the Nov. 24 letter from the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena, Iraq. The U.S. Dominican Justice Promoters have organized a delegation of sisters and friars to visit the Iraqi sisters early next year. They are requesting prayers, Christmas cards, and financial donations.
