Rahi: I warn against tampering with the people’s money and the banking system

Maronite Patriarch Beshara Boutros Al-Rahi presided over Sunday Mass in Bkerke.

During his sermon, the patriarch Rahi spoke about educational affairs, considering that the government and the Ministry of Education cannot ignore students’ loss of education in public schools.

In his sermon, Al-Rahi also touched on the presidential file, saying: “No matter how long the presidential vacancy lasts, elections must take place on the basis of the voting mechanism in the House of Representatives.”

Commenting on the issue of banks and depositors’ money, he warned against tampering with the people’s money and the banking system, and about the danger of harming Lebanon’s external reputation, “so that it becomes a country far from the global financial system, and at that time there will be no benefit to any solution.”

Finally, the patriarch expressed his condolences to the family of Sheikh Ahmed Al-Rifai and Dar Al Iftaa, stressing the importance of the country not being able to live under security chaos.
