Maronite Patriarch, Mar Bechara Boutros Al-Rahi, on Monday prayed for God the almighty to inspire local and international officials with the much-needed solutions to help people out of the existing crises that have been recently shaking different parts of the world.
Rahi prayed for swift presidential elections in Lebanon, deeming this an essential step to reorganize all constitutional and public institutions, especially in their capacity as essential tools to resolve all the economic, livelihood, moral, and security crises nationwide.
Rahi's words came in an address he gave earlier today while chairing a mass ceremony marking the Assumption of Mary at the Patriarchal seat of the Maronite Church in Diman.
"We pray for God to help officials renounce their petty personal interests for peace to prevail in the region... this region which introduced peace to the world from the holy lands of Palestine, Syria and Iraq," the Maronite Patriarch added.
