This week, on a special edition of the SLHour, we look back at Pope Francis’ historic visit to Iraq. We hear from the Most Rev. Bashar Warda of the Chaldean Catholic Archdiocese of Erbil, and we examine the significance of the trip with a panel of experts, Fr. Dominic Robinson, SJ and John Pontifex of Aid to the Church in Need, UK and Stephen Rasche of the Catholic University in Erbil.
