Druze Sheikh Akl, Naim Hassan, on Thursday met at the House of the Druze Community in Beirut, Apostolic Nuncio, Joseph Spiteri, who delivered to him Pope Francis's message on the occasion of the International Day of Peace.
The message bears the Pope's vision of peace as a path of hope, dialogue, reconciliation, environmental repentance, and the concept of peace through fraternal communion.
Sheikh Akl welcomed the papal nuncio, thanking him for the Pope's valuable message about peace that all of our people and the world yearn for, especially during the delicate circumstances that our societies are going through at the various levels.
Speaking on emerging, Spiteri highlighted the importance of solidarity among the Lebanese, hoping that the Lebanese officials would shoulder their responsibilities so that Lebanon can overcome this crisis and form a government as soon as possible.
"We continue to pray for Lebanon and its people," the apostolic nuncio said, voicing permanent commitment to assisting this nation.
