Petition for the Glorification of Iraqi New Martyrs

A petition has begun to have the Christians killed in the violence in Iraq since the US invasion glorified as new martyrs. It's unclear whether the petition is to the Vatican or to all the hierarchies of the various churches present in the country, but it calls for the glorification of murdered Chaldean and Syrian Catholic clergy and laity in Iraq and the martyred Syriac Orthodox priests Frs. Boulos Iskandar, Yusuf Petros, and Amer Iskander (all murdered in late 2006). More here.
