Papal Ambassdor to Lebanon, Joseph Spiteri, pursued on Saturday his tour in the governorate of Akkar, North Lebanon, at the invitation of the Maronite Archbishop of Tripoli, Mgr Georges Abou Jaoude.
In this context, Spiteri participated in a spiritual meeting that took place at the Maronite Patriarchate of Qobeiyat, in the presence of different religious figures from different sects.
Speaking at the meeting, he wished that "the Lebanese would continue to offer a great testimony of fraternity among communities and sects in all Lebanese regions."
"It is true that the politicians have a political agenda, but as clerics we have to work continuously for peace, love and brotherhood," he went on.
Finally, Spiteri conveyed the greetings of Pope Francis to the Lebanese people.
