Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, embraces Amal Mare during a visit to a camp for internally displaced families in Ankawa, near Erbil, Iraq, on April 9, 2016. Dolan, chair of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association, is in Iraqi Kurdistan with other church leaders to visit with Christians and others displaced by ISIS. Mare broke down while asking Dolan how long it would be until she and her family could return to their home in Qaraqosh. She said they had been praying the rosary every night, but were tired of living in misery and wanted to go home.
