Annual Synod meeting concludes its works in Bkerke

The Patriarchal edifice in Bkerke on Saturday concluded the activities of the Maronite Church’s Synod headed by Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Mar Beshara Boutros Al-Rahi, in the presence of bishops representing sects in Lebanon and abroad.

In an issued statement following the Synod meeting, conferees urged officials that “dialogue is necessary for a critical reading of past events and opening the way to reconciliation.”

The Synod members also called on the deputies to “carry out their national and constitutional duty and elect a president for the republic, and then speed up the formation of a qualified and capable government that possesses a dynamic reform program so that powers are contracted and their balance and cooperation is secured with a unified national will.”

Finally, conferees urged concerned officials to maintain the coexistence between Muslims and Christians in the country.
