Rahi: Our independence lacks the presence of responsible officials and real leaders

The Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Mar Bechara Boutros Al-Rahi, considered that “independence does not coexist with a ruling system that does not secure prosperity for its people.”

He said: “It would be better if officials believed that Lebanon’s existence is a project of a sovereign and neutral independence in this East.”

Al-Rahi’s words came in his Sunday sermon, when he said: “Rise up to get the people out of their humiliation and let them live under the auspices of the state and be liberated from sectarian projects.”

He added, “Our independence is lacking the presence of responsible officials and leaders.”
