Holy Father, Pope Francis emphasized that “Evil and death cannot have the final word on the path of life”.
“Having faith in resurrection puts the power of conversion, in our hearts, in order to build a better world” the Pope said.
In addition, the Supreme Pontiff prayed that “the spirit of wisdom supports the President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, and his aides, illuminating their footsteps to lead Lebanon along the pathways of peace, freedom, and love.”
The Pope expressed his views in a letter to the President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, in response to a prior message received on the occasion of the Resurrection.
In the letter, Pope Francis also expressed his complete sympathy with “The Beloved Lebanon,” dedicating Lebanon to the Virgin Mary’s care and taking advantage of the opportunity to shower his apostolic graces on the entire Lebanese people.
