Rahi contacts from Rome heads of Islamic sects on Adha occasion

Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Bechara Boutros al-Rahi, currently present in Rome, contacted this afternoon heads of the Islamic sects in Lebanon, congratulating them on the Adha Eid.

Al-Rahi hoped that "this holy occasion would bring about blessings for the Lebanese," and "Lebanon would remain the country of coexistence and a role model for dialogue between religions and civilizations that the world needs more than ever today."

He also stressed on the "role of the believer's prayer, regardless of which religion, in ceasing wars and violence and spreading God's peace between peoples and societies."
