The Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung are pleased to invite you to join a webinar on the political and religious implications of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Journey to Iraq. The webinar, under the theme “You are all brothers” will take place on Monday, March 15, 2021, from 18:00 to 19:30 CET / 1:00PM to 2:30PM US Eastern.
Pope Francis’ historic visit to Iraq was the first visit of a Pope to the homeland of Abraham. The visit was not only dedicated to the Christians living in the war-torn and fragile middle eastern country, but it was also a significant contribution to inter-religious dialogue in view of advancing peace and reconciliation in the region and globally.
What will be the religious and political implications in Iraq and in the region? How these events will shape EU policies and international action? These and other questions will be at centre of the webinar, together with H. E. Mgr. Franz-Josef Overbeck (Vice President of COMECE), Fr. Jens Petzold (Monastery of the Virgin Mary in Sulaymaniyah) and Stefan von Kempis (Vatican News).
