Chaldean priests reminds us what effect forgiveness has on the future.

In this video about its work in Iraq, the international aid organization Samaritan's Purse interviews Fr. Douglas Al-Bazi, a Chaldean Catholic priest who serves thousands of Christian refugees in Erbil—Christians forced to flee their villages and cities by Islamic State militias. Fr. Douglas, who was kidnapped and severely beaten by ISIS, speaks about how important it is to forgive the militants because otherwise, God's grace canl not be passed on to future generations. Helping the people of Iraq is about prayer and practical aid, and in this video we get a glimpse of how Samaritan’s Purse is showing the Iraqi people, and their children, that God is a God of love.
