THANK GOD (no pun intended --well, not a big one anyway) that the Pope and the Catholic Church was against the Iraq war:
A Catholic archbishop, Basile Georges Casmoussa, has been kidnapped by insurgents in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

The capture of Basile Georges Casmoussa was announced by Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro Valls today.
The spokesman says the Holy See "condemns in the firmest manner this terrorist act and demands that Monsignor Casmoussa is rapidly returned safe and well to his ministry".
