Maronite bishops urge neutrality for Lebanon
CWN - August 08, 2013
The Maronite Catholic bishops have urged Lebanon to maintain neutrality in the face of current conflicts in their region, the Fides news service reports.
The statement from the Maronite bishops obviously refers most pointedly to the conflict in neighboring Syria. The bishops added that caring for the thousands of refugees from that civil war who have found their way to Lebanon is a “national duty.”
