Maronite Patriarch Bechara al-Rahi pointed out to the shaky faith of the Lebanese youth in their country, blaming this on the politicians’ indifference to their future and reluctance in making reforms.
“The faith in Lebanon as a final homeland for all its people has become shaky due to political practices and allegiance either to another country, or to a sect or a party. It is also due to differences and stubborn stances that are made at the expense of the country, its institutions and public welfare,” Al-Rahi said in his Sunday sermon.
The Patriarch noted that the faith in the country is weakening due to the rampant corruption and squandering of public funds without feeling any regret over the damage it is causing to the state and the people.
He added that is faith in the country is slumping due to politicians’ indifference towards the future of its young generation, and failure to improve the economy and create job opportunities that would motivate the youth to stay in the country.
Al-Rahi denounced the deadly attack that targeted two mosques in New Zealand, deeming it as a monstrous and heinous act.
