Upon an invitation by Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Bechara Boutros al-Rahi, the Synod of the Maronite Church Bishops concluded its works in Bkirki on Saturday, calling upon State officials, particularly the parliament and the government, to find a radical solution to end corruption in the country.
In an issued statement following the Synod meeting, conferees urged officials "to set an economic rescue plan to improve the country's situation and to curb the widespread corruption in the State."
The Synod members also called on the international communities to push their efforts regarding the return of Syrian refugees to their motherland and to help the displaced rebuild their homes.
Finally, conferees urged concerned officials to maintain the coexistence between Muslims and Christians in the country.
