Maronite Patriarch Beshara Boutros al-Rai declared Saturday from Bkerke that Pope Francis had decided to consecrate the life of virtues of late Patriarch Elias Boutros al-Hoayek (1843-1931) by signing a decree to honor him.

 

“Pope Francis also authorized the promulgation of decrees on the heroic virtues of the Lebanese Servant of God Elias Hoayek, Patriarch of Antioch of the Maronites, Founder of the Congregation of the Maronite Sisters of the Holy Family.  He was born in Helta (Lebanon) on 4 December 1843 and died in Bkerke (Lebanon) on 24 December 1931,” the Vatican News website announced on Friday.
