ROME, MARCH 27, 2006 (Zenit.org).- Chaldean Patriarch Emmanuel III Delly of Baghdad has proposed April 3-4 as days of fasting and prayer for peace in Iraq.

“We have estranged ourselves from God by our deeds,” wrote the patriarch in the message, which was reported by Italian bishops’ SIR news service; “we do not obey his will, and we have moved away from piety and virtue, from forgiveness, and because of this the blood of so many brothers has been shed and so many children have remained orphans.”

For this reason, the Christian representative said, “we must return, repentant to God’s house to do the will of our sovereign God.” Article
