Pope Francis: My Next Trip Will Be to Lebanon

Pope Francis on Monday announced that his next trip to the Middle East will be to Lebanon, after ending a historical four-day trip to Iraq.

“Lebanon is in crisis, and has a weakness resulting from diversity but has also the strength of its people,” Sky News Arabia quoted him as saying.

“Maronite Patriarch Bechara al-Rahi had asked me to stop by Lebanon on my way back, but it seemed to me to be too little for a country that is suffering a lot,” he said.

“I wrote him a letter and I promised him that I will visit Lebanon,” he added.
