At a press conference to brief journalists on his recent visit to Erbil in Iraq, Cardinal Vincent Nichols spoke of an Iraqi priest he met who was held captive by Al-Qaeda fighters for nine days in 2003. Now, 12 years later, the priest is part of the front-line response helping tens of thousands of refugees fleeing ISIS and the conflict in Syria. #Iraq #ISIS #priest
