President's Circle

June 19, 2016:

CTU alumna Sr. Luma Khudher, OP, gives a firsthand account of “The Situation of Christians in Iraq: Struggle and Hope.”  Though Christians in Iraq are considered to be one of the oldest continuous Christian communities in the world, reports note that hundreds of ancient Christian churches and places of worship have been destroyed by the self-proclaimed Islamic State throughout Iraq and Syria.  Millions have been forced to flee as refugees, and entire groups have been killed. Large Christian communities have also been emptied, putting an end to thousands of years of history.


This podcast features a talk by Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, a Basilian Father and CEO of Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation. Fr. Rosica, CSB, is the English language assistant to the Holy See Press Office, and he served as an official spokesperson for the transition from Pope Benedict the Sixteenth to Pope Francis. Fr. Rosica, CSB, spoke at CTU on June 22, 2015, as part of a President’s Circle event.
