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.

Hi Poche -  :tiphat:

Thanks for your great post!

I was thinking that since:

Quote:The patriarch of the Maronite Catholic Church has consecrated Lebanon and the entire Middle East to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

who is obviously only ONE Catholic Prelate, why can't - at a minimum (worse case scenario) - at least ONE REAL Catholic Prelate in the U.S.A. Consecrate the United States of America to the Immaculate Heart of Mary while all Catholics around the world (including those of us in the U.S.A.) are waiting for the Pope to Consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary?   ???    :incense:

Just a thought. 

Thanks for reading!   :tiphat:

God Bless You!
