Lebanese political and security leaders gathered Sunday at the Mar Maroun Church in Ashrafieh’s Gemmayzeh for a Mass led by Beirut Maronite Archbishop, Boulos Abdul-Sater, to mark St. Maroun’s Day.
“Don’t the tens of thousands of Lebanese who elected you deserve that the political, economic and financial imbalances be addressed?” Abdul-Sater asked the officials during the sermon, underscoring the necessity to work day and night with the real rebels, otherwise resignation is “more honorable”.
The Mass was attended by President Michel Aoun, House Speaker Nabih Berri, Prime Minister Hassan Diab, in addition to various political, security, social and religious leaders.
Abdul-Sater also prayed for “all Lebanese officials so they could leave behind a good legacy after a long life, and remember that authority is a service.”
“A genuine leader is the one who resists resettlement and naturalization,” he concluded.
