Bangalore (India), 09/03/20, Sr. Jacintha Gracy Miranda, Coordinator of JPIC.- Pope Francis issued a worldwide invitation for all to join on Friday, September 4, 2020 for a day of fasting and prayer for Lebanon, including all “other religious confessions”.  

Lebanon, which faces “extreme danger,” cannot be “abandoned in its solitude,” said Pope Francis in a long message dedicated to the country at the end of his general audience on September 2, 2020. “One month after the tragedy that struck the city of Beirut, my thoughts turn once again to Lebanon and its people, so sorely tried”, said the Pope holding the flag of Lebanon that a young Maronite priest brought to the general audience with the Pope.

Let us join with our community in Lebanon at this universal prayer for the country remembering all those who suffer.
