December 25, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - After a nearly three year occupation and siege, Christians in Mosul, Iraq are now free to worship and did so in a Christmas Eve Mass at St. Paul’s Church which only became possible upon ISIS’s recent defeat that left much of the historic city in rubble.
St. Paul’s is reportedly the only functioning church in the rubble.
Presiding over the celebration Father Thabet Habib said, “Our faith and our hope was to be here to evangelize on our earth and in our town.”©2018 PipeLineNews.org LLC. All rights reserved.
