BAGHDAD, IRAQ (Worthy News)– Iraq's Patriarch has appealed for the release of two nuns and three orphans who have been missing in Mosul, according to Yahoo News.

“We are appealing for scholars in Mosul and tribal sheikhs to help us release two nuns and three orphans,” said Chaldean Patriarch Louis Sako. “We lived together side-by-side for 14 centuries. We still want to communicate and live together.”

Last month, Muslims led by the jihadists captured Mosul in an offensive that displaced hundreds of thousands. They removed the crosses from Mosul’s Chaldean and Assyrian Orthodox cathedrals and replaced them with the black flag of the Islamic State.

Iraq’s Christian community once numbered more than a million nationwide, but now there are fewer than 400,000.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
