Chaldean catholic patriarchate of babylon

The Chaldean Catholic Patriarchate of Babylon (Latin: Patriarchatus Babylonensis Chaldaeorum) is based in Iraq and is the only patriarchy of the Chaldean Catholic Church. The current Patriarch is Patriarch Mar Louis Raphaël I Sako. The auxiliary bishops are Bishop Shlemon Warduni and Archbishop Jacques Ishaq.

The cathedral church is the Church of Mary Mother of Sorrows in Baghdad, Iraq.

The term Chaldeans in this frame indicates the Assyrian members of the Chaldean Catholic Church.

The title of the Chaldean Patriarch is a symbolic rite of the Church representing symbolic origins to ancient Chaldæa in response to the opposing views of Neo-Assyrian influence by the Assyrian Church of the East. The church was formed in response to a patriarchate dispute, known as the Schism of 1552, which in turn split the Church of the East into two religious factions; Catholicism and Nestorianism.
