Pope Francis: "Iraq leave us in dismay and disbelief..."

Pope Francis: Angelus Address, Sunday August 10, 2014

"The news reports coming from Iraq leave us in dismay and disbelief: 

thousands of people, including many Christians, driven from their homes in a brutal manner; children dying of thirst and hunger in their flight; 

women taken and carried off; violence every kind; destruction of historical, cultural and religious patrimonies. 

All this gravely offends God and humanity. Hatred is not to be carried in the name of God! War is not to be waged in the name of God!"
