Our Lady of Deliverance

It appears in the latest update below, but something about this photo -- an image of the Madonna at the entrance of Baghdad's Syrian Catholic cathedral, damaged in Sunday night's "bloodbath" within its walls -- powerfully stood out, and calls out for it to stand alone.

The most deadly strike against Iraq's already much-besieged Christian community since the 2003 US-led invasion, the toll from the attack at evening Mass stands at 58 killed, another 70 to 80 seriously wounded.

As ever, more below.
