Pope Francis Sends Message of Solidarity to Displaced Christian Families in Iraq and Nigeria

Pope Francis has expressed his concern for Christian families and other victims of violence who have been expelled from their homes and villages in Iraq.   

A statement issued Friday by the Holy See’s Press Office says the Pope is particularly concerned about those from Mosul and the Nineveh Plains, many of whom have found refuge in Iraqi Kurdistan. The press statement further says the Holy Father is praying for the victims and hopes that they will soon be able to return to their former lives in their homeland where for centuries they have lived in good relations with their neighbours.

In this coming Holy Week these families particularly share in the injustice and sufferings of Christ, and as a sign of unity, Cardinal Fernando Filoni, Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, will return to Iraq to be with the expelled families and to pray with them during this time of suffering. 

Babies Born to Kidnapped Nigerian Schoolgirls Due to Rape

It has been a year since the kidnapping of 232 Nigerian schoolgirls gained world attention. Sadly, the first babies born to the schoolgirls due to rape arrived in February. Four girls who managed to escape the terror group said they were raped almost on a daily basis, according to a report by World Watch Monitor (WWM).

The four girls said those who did not cooperate with the rebels faced severe punishment. Other girls captured previously who managed to escape said some girls were killed because they would not renounce their Christian faith, WWM reported.

Meanwhile, a woman recently released by Boko Haram reports she was held in the same location as the schoolgirls - Gwoza town in Borno state, according to the International Center for Investigative Reporting (ICIR). Mbutu Papka, 56, was kidnapped in July 2014 and held by the insurgents for eight months in two locations.
