Living stones: Who are the Christians of the Holy Land?

September 14, 2012
Today the Pope landed in Lebanon to release his highly-anticipated message about the Christians of the Middle East. Why are the Christians struggling? And how can the Pope help them? On Catholic Focus, we interview the Patriarch of the Maronite Catholic Church and an Armenian Orthodox peace activist. We ask them what they expect the Pope to say in his message, titled "Ecclesia in Medio Oriente", which was signed today at a Melkite Basilica in Harissa and will be released at the open-air closing mass in Beirut on Sunday.
