Maronite Patriarch Bechara Rai and Pope Benedict XVI

January 28, 2013. ( Cardinal Bechara Rai, the Patriarch of Antioch of the Maronites, will be in charge of preparing the texts that will be read during Good Friday's Way of the Cross ceremony, at the Colosseum.   

It's a way to thank Benedict XVI for his recent trip to Lebanon, where he called for peace and prayed for all the Christians in the Middle East, who are going through this period of instability. 

At this point, two youths from Lebanon will take part in preparing the texts for the ceremony. It's a symbol of the future of Christianity in the Middle East, the land where Jesus was born.
