Lebanon - Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Bechara Boutros al-Rahi, pointed out that if the political officials were humble and loving, they would have abandoned their interests and reconciled with politics and the state, and they would not have brought the country to this political and social misery.
Patriarch Rahi indicated that officials are trying to save their souls and their interests, not the country, and they act as if there are no people or system.
During the Divine Liturgy on the eighth anniversary of Lebanon's dedication to the Immaculate Heart of Mary from Harissa's Basilica, Rahi added that officials do not care about the Lebanese people, who can no longer tolerate injustice.
He also stressed that people could no longer bear to remain silent about the crime of the Beirut port explosion.
Finally, the Patriarch called on the United Nations to salvage Lebanon from collapse and bankruptcy, and appealed to the Health Organization to put its hand on the health situation in Lebanon.
