CWN Editor's Note: Maronite Catholic Patriarch Bechara al Rai has arrived in Riyadh, becoming the first Catholic cardinal ever to visit Saudi Arabia. The Lebanese prelate has emphasized that his trip is intended to promote inter-religious harmony. However, he will meet with Lebanon’s former Prime Minister Saad Hariri, who unexpectedly resigned last week during a visit to Saudi Arabia and remains there amid confused circumstances.
