An important message from St. Thomas the Apostle Chaldean Catholic Diocese

To the Faithful of St. Thomas the Apostle Chaldean Catholic Diocese. Through the grace of baptism every Christian has the Holy Spirit dwelling in them. Each of us have the ability to bless. To be clear I have not given Najeeb Awad to have any special authority of healing or blessing over anyone. Also to be clear Mr. Najeeb Awad is not a priest. Mr. Najeeb Awad paid a visit and asked for a blessing from Bishop Francis Kalabat in which the blessing was given. This blessing did in no way mean endorsing the prayer services that Mr. Awad is doing in people’s homes.
