In the March 2018 edition of ONE, we feature a poignant Letter From Iraq by Sister Clara Nacy, superior general of the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena.

Last year, CNS’s gifted photojournalist Paul Jeffrey offered this glimpse at some of the sisters who are ministering to displaced Iraqis — and this account helped give more context and background to the struggles so many Iraqi Christians have been facing.

With Cardinal Timothy Dolan, CNEWA’s chair, recently speaking about his encounter with refugees in Lebanon — and chronicling this week’s pastoral visit to the region with some richly detailed videos — we thought it a good time to look back on a short piece we produced and posted three years ago.

Marlene Constantin, a CNEWA project manager in Beirut, described efforts to help Syrian refugees in her country, and did it with both poignancy and power.

New terrorist group emerging in Syria (Business Insider) With up to 90% of its territory lost, ISIS appears effectively defeated as a conventional foe. But while the black flag of ISIS is being lowered, another may soon take its place — the white flag of Hay’at Tahrir al Sham. A new report in the Wall Street Journal details H.T.S.’s rise as it consolidates power in northwest Syria. Led by a former Al Qaeda militant, H.T.S. is mostly based in Syria’s Idlib Governorate and has taken advantage of the U.S.-led coalition’s focus on ISIS in the East, as well as the Syrian government and Russia’s focus on other parts of the country…

Gaza youth dies after protest near border (AP) The Health Ministry says the 24-year-old was killed in a border area in northern Gaza on Friday. Earlier in the day, a 25-year-old man was shot and killed in the same area. It says 40 protesters were wounded by gunfire or overcome by tear gas fired by Israeli troops from across the border fence…
