Seferta, Joseph – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2016
There was a brief period in the long history of the suffering church in Iraq when it received a tremendous support that it could only dream about.

Wuerl, Donald – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2013

This article seeks to explore the depths of these realities in the context of our culture, our society--a world not always prepared to hear and accept the message. It is precisely this context that has evoked the call…
