Baby Food before the Great Feast

The Metro-Detroit area has been the largest hub for Chaldean Catholics in America. The Chaldean Church, also called The Church of the East, can be seen as the liturgical and historical “older brother” of our own SyroMalabar Church. Before arriving in India, St. Thomas the Apostle evangelized the people of modern day Iraq. Despite constant persecution in the Middle East, and amid the chaos of post-Saddam Iraq, the Chaldeans still thrive. Knowing that the Chaldeans, many of whom still speak and worship in Aramaic (the language of Jesus and the Apostles), have ten churches in the Metro-Detroit area, I felt a call to reach out to them and encounter what our older brothers in faith had to offer.
