President Michel Aoun thanked Pope Francis on Saturday for granting a long-held Lebanese wish: the beatification of two honorable martyrs from Baabdat, Father Leonard Oueis Melki and Father Touma Saleh.
"This celebration confirms to the entire world that Lebanon remains at the center of the Church's concerns and will continue to be the homeland of holiness," Aoun said.
