President, First Lady partake in Mass at St. John Baptist Monastery in Beit Mery
President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, and Lebanese First Lady, Nadia Aoun, participated in a Mass service on the occasion of the feast of St. John the Baptist and the 250th anniversary of the construction of the old monastery church in Beit Mery.
After the Mass, Aoun recalled the old memories of the Antonine Order and the Monastery, saying that "this Monastery was particularly supportive to the army and the homeland's dignity and sovereignty."
"It is a historical stage that Lebanon has experienced and must be known by every Lebanese citizen, because those who forget history will repeat mistakes," Aoun concluded.
