Bkirki prepares for Christian meeting as FPM says to attend

The Maronite patriarchate in Bkirki is continuing its preparations for the “day of prayer and contemplation” that it has invited Christian MPs to attend on April 5, al-Joumhouria newspaper reported on Monday.

Bkirki hopes “the general national affairs, including the election of a president, will be discussed after the prayer and contemplation,” the daily quoted unnamed sources as saying.

A delegation from the Free Patriotic Movement-led Strong Lebanon bloc had informed Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi on Sunday that the bloc will take part in the “prayer and contemplation day,” hoping the meeting will represent “an occasion to draw lessons from Christian teachings and values in approaching all national junctures.”

Most Christian blocs had also announced that they would take part in the gathering.
