Sister Diana's testimony of her native Iraq's "before and after" is a compelling story that the American public needs to read and hear. It's a behind-the-scenes report of daily life of ordinary citizens, especially Christians persecuted for their faith. Many become modern martyrs of the Church. Thank you for printing Sister Diana's story.
