Roman Catholic figure slams bid to scare Christians
A+ A-

BEIRUT: A leading Roman Catholic figure expressed regret at what he called attempts to frighten the Christian community ahead of religious holidays. 

Maroun Abu Rgeily, the head of the Association of Roman Catholics, was referring to an incident in which two sticks of dynamite exploded in the courtyard of a church in Maghdoushe, where the Virgin Mary is believed to have waited for Jesus Christ as he toured Sidon. 

Abu Rgeily said the incident may be connected to the Lebanese Army’s deployment in the area in the wake of two recent attacks on the military near Sidon. 

“The Christians believe in the military institution and its leadership to guarantee their security, freedom and safety, and they praise the Lebanese Army’s missions and sacrifices,” Abu Rgeily added.
