Maronite Patriarch hosts talks on Lebanon's future

Catholic World News - June 03, 2011

Maronite Catholic Patriarch Beshara Rai has brought together lay Catholic leaders from the country’s contending political factions to discuss the Christian presence in Lebanon.

The talks, held at the Maronite headquarters in Bkerke, focused on issues such as religious freedom, the defense of Christian institutions, and the need for a greater representation of Christians in public positions.

The newly elected Maronite Patriarch has been urging Lebanese political leaders—including the Maronite Catholics who are found in both government and opposition—to find a resolution to a current stalemate in talks, and set up a national-unity government.
