Al-Rahi from Vatican: We Wish Cabinet Success to Meet People’s High Expectations
Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi wished the new government success on Tuesday in order for it to meet the people’s high expectations given the crises in the Middle East.
He made his statements from the Vatican, where he arrived on Sunday to take part in the Middle East synod.
Al-Rahi hoped that peace will be established in the region in order for the people to live in stability and dignity.
“We pray on a daily basis that Lebanon will maintain its role as a positive factor in the region due to its unique system and message to the world,” the patriarch added.
“Despite some of its crises, this small country will remain the beacon of hope in the region,” he stressed.
He is expected to meet with Pope Benedict XVI during his visit.
