Benedict XVI tells Maronite prelate: I pray daily for Lebanon

Catholic World News - February 26, 2014

Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI has assured the leader of the Maronite Catholic Church that he prays daily for Lebanon, the AsiaNews service reports.

Maronite Patriarch Bechara Rai met with the retired Pontiff on February 22, when they were seated close together during the ceremony at which Pope Francis conferred red hats on 18 new cardinals. During their brief conversation, Benedict XVI told the Maronite leader that he had vivid memories of his pastoral visit to Lebanon in September 2012.
