CWN Editor's Note: Official Saudi news outlets provided no details on talks between Maronite Patriarch Bechara al Rai and Saudi government leaders. But the prelate’s visit was portrayed as a bid for improved inter-religious ties. After his visit to Riyadh the Lebanese Patriarch continued to Rome, where he will confer with Pope Francis.
