The head of the Catholic Church in Iraq has called for intra-Muslim dialogue to promote religious harmony and avoid further conflict in the Arab region. Cardinal Louis Raphael Sako, said that dialogue and reconciliation were necessary for regional stability and security. There are ongoing conflicts in Iraq. There is a division between the Sunnis and Shiites, especially in Islam. Why can’t there be forgiveness between the people? Why can’t there be a direct dialogue and respect between the two sides? Cardinal Sako said. There should be a process of inclusion between the two sides — this is what God would want. Pray for Iraqis to do away with hatred, provocation, and ex-communication and set aside ancient and modern conflict in all its forms. Pray for Iraqis to dedicate their lives to God who is the source of peace and love (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 5:19).
