PLAINS OF UR, Iraq-What’s new in Pope Francis’ historic visit to Iraq with the aim of bringing together the declining Christian community of the country after decades of war and anxiety (always local):
Pope Francis sets aside historical hostility to Iraqi Muslims, Christians and other believers in the ancient city of Ur for a pagan rally aimed at cooperating for peace and unity. Arrived.
Francis visited the traditional birthplace of the Prophet Abraham, worshiped by Muslims, Christians and Jews, on Saturday, emphasizing the message of interreligious tolerance and friendship during the first Pope’s visit to Iraq.
The meeting was held behind the magnificent ziggurat of Ur, a 6,000-year-old archaeological complex near Nasiriyah in southern Iraq.
The heathen meeting in Ur, Frances, took place after a historic encounter with Iraq’s top Shiite priest, Grand Ayatollah Real Sistani, in nearby Najaf.
