Vatican confirms Pope's trip to Lebanon

2012-06-13

The pope will meet with bishops from the countries in the region and there he will sign his first official document addressing the situation of Christians in the Middle East.

Given the exodus of Christians and the social situation, there will be an important meeting with intellectuals from various countries, as well as a meeting with young people.

Lebanon is the country with the most Christians in the Middle East. It is considered part of the Holy Land and home to the cities of Tyre and Sidon, places that Jesus once preached. John Paul II visited the country in 1997, fifteen years ago.
