Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Bechara Boutros Rahi, likened the people’s revolution to “torrential rain,” calling on the political class to not disdain the civil movements and the youth revolution that wants to build a new civilized Lebanon.
“There is no stronger force than the people!” he stressed.
The Prelate also advised the officials “not to ignore the demands of the people so that they do not block the roads, and not to bear the responsibility for destroying Lebanon before the international community.”
On the other hand, the Patriarch called for mutual respect for the prerogatives of the judiciary and ecclesiastical justice in the case of “Mission de Vie.”
