Francis on October 27, 2019, offered prayers for the people of Lebanon, beset with widespread protest of the past days. His comments came after praying the noonday Angelus with the crowds of pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

“A special thought goes to the dear Lebanese people, in particular, to the young people that in the past days have made their cry heard in face of the challenges and social and economic problems of the country I exhort all to seek just solutions by way of dialogue,” the Holy Father said, “and I pray to the Virgin Mary, Queen of Lebanon, so that, with the support of the international community, that country may continue to be an area of peaceful coexistence and of respect for the dignity and freedom of every person, for the benefit of the whole Middle East Region.”
