Besides the Cardinal, Bishop Joseph Spiteri, Apostolic Nuncio in Lebanon, participated in the liturgical celebration. Due to health security measures imposed by the pandemic, a limited number of faithful from different regions of the country attended the celebration.

Lebanon’s first Consecration to Mary was in 2013.

Patriarch Béchara Boutros Raï consecrated Lebanon and the entire Middle East to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for the first time on June 16, 2013.

On the occasion of that first Consecration, a crowd of faithful gathered around the Basilica to implore that the Land of the Cedars not be crushed by the contagion of the sectarian conflicts that were tearing apart neighboring Syria.

Also on the occasion of that first solemn act of Consecration, celebrated in the Marian Shrine of Harissa, the Maronite Patriarch prayed that all the people of the region be freed “from the sins that lead to divisions, aggression and violence.”
