Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Bechara Boutros Rahi, criticized Lebanese politicians, calling on them to stop hatred and tampering with the fate of the collapsed nation.
Rahi, who presided over Sunday Mass in Bkirki, stressed in his homily that Lebanon is a “democratic state”, indicating that no one has the right to impose his will.
The Prelate held responsible all those who impede the prosperity and development of Lebanon at the economic, financial and daily-living levels.
“What prevents Lebanon from following the path of development, growth and prosperity are the personal calculations and narrow interests of the Lebanese officials,” Rahi said.
Finally, Rahi appealed to officials in the Lebanese Republic to lift the social and economic sufferings and burdens off of all citizens.
