Pope to meet with Lebanon's Christian leaders
Pope Francis plans to meet with leaders of Lebanon's Christian community on Tuesday for a "day of reflection on the worrying situation in the country," Reuters reports.
- Prime Minister-designate Saad al-Hariri "has been at loggerheads for months with President Michel Aoun over cabinet positions," per Reuters.
- Hariri won last October, but has been unable to form a new government, according to Reuters.
The big picture: Pope Francis has previously said that he would visit Lebanon once it formed a new government.
- He said Sunday that during their meeting, he and Lebanon's Christian leaders will "pray together for the gift of peace and stability," per Reuters.
- The Vatican did not confirm which representatives of Lebanon's Christian denominations will be present at the meeting.
