Pope Francis calls on us to pray and help Christians persecuted in the Middle East

The Arabic letter "Nun" spray painted by Islamists
identifying "Nazarenes", or Christians
Our Holy Father recently implored Catholics to pray and work for a cessation to the escalating violence and brutality being conducted in the Middle East by Islamists. The recent expunging on Christians from Mosul by Islamists brings to an end the Christian presence in that city. It was further accompanied by the grotesque sight of the Arabic letter "Nun" being marked on Christian homes; akin to the Nazi demarcations of Jewish homes in the 1930s.
