Middle East Consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
#1
The patriarch of the Maronite Catholic Church has consecrated Lebanon and the entire Middle East to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Lebanese President Michel Suleiman, a Catholic, and Prime Minister Tammam Salam, a Muslim, were present at the consecration.

During the consecration, Cardinal Béchara Boutros Raï prayed:


Our Lady of Lebanon, we ask you to bestow your tenderness upon our beloved country Lebanon and all the Middle East, this region which soil witnessed the fulfillment of the events of His plan of redemption and from where the Church, by the grace of the Holy Spirit, took off to bring the Good News to the entire populations, bearing witness to the Lord Jesus until martyrdom and acting as the guarantor of the treasure of faith, in order to transmit it from generation to generation, until it reached us.
