Monsignor Mariano Fazio brought the affection and support of the Prelate during the unprecedented social and economic crisis in Lebanon, aggravated by the explosion in the port of Beirut in August 2020, and the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic. As Michel Medarde tells us from Beirut: “The government is providing only three hours of electricity a day (the rest is provided by private generators, if available). People need to wait in line up to five hours for 8 gallons of gasoline, and many families have had to leave the country. Pharmacies lack even the basic medications, and people have gone from eating meat almost daily to being able to do so only every ten days.”

“You are going through material circumstances that make life difficult,” Monsignor Fazio told them, “but you have a great treasure, your faith, which enables you to see with hope that God makes use of all this to help us become better. You should be people who pass on hope in your surroundings, who are concerned about others.”

Praise the Lord
