The Patriarch of the Maronite Catholic Church worldwide has been visiting the United States since October 1, 2011. As an American born, English/Scottish descent Maronite, I have found myself in awe of this visit. I am sad I could not get the time away from work to meet him, but many of my fellow Maronites have had the great privledge of meeting him and attending a Divine Liturgy he celebrated. I can only hope his leadership can bring peace to the middle east which will help other Christians there as well. May the Lord Bless his leadership and efforts at peace in the middle east, so all can live again without the danger of an unjust war.
