Sfeir Won’t Address Political Situation during LF Mass
Former Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir will not address the political situation in Lebanon during the Saturday’s mass commemorating the fallen members of the Lebanese Forces, revealed information obtained by Naharnet on Friday.
Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi will be unable to attend, but he will send his deputy Roland Abu Jaoude who will deliver a speech on the patriarch’s behalf.
LF leader Samir Geagea had inspected on Friday the final preparations for the mass, especially given the poor weather conditions.
The head of the Lebanese Forces media department Hani Safi told Naharnet that Geagea’s speech will include an initiative towards Hizbullah.
He did not disclose further details.
His “strong-worded speech” will also tackle the situation of Christians in Lebanon and the region, as well as the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and the developments in Syria, added Safi.
