Patriarch John X Presides over the Divine Liturgy.
Balamand, October 9, 2022

His Beatitude Patriarch John X presided over the Divine Liturgy in the Patriarchal Monastery of Our Lady of Balamand. He was assisted in service by His Eminence Metropolitan Jacques (Argentina). The Abbot of the Monastery, Rt. Reverend Archimandrite Romanos Hannat, and the Dean of the Institute of Theology, Rt. Reverend Archimandrite Jack Khalil, and many priests and deacons participated in the Divine Liturgy.

His Eminence Metropolitan Jacques delivered a homily, in which he stressed the importance and meaning of the word "He had compassion on her" in today’s Gospel, which recites the miracle of the raising of the son of the widow of Nain.

At the end of the liturgy, His Beatitude addressed a blessing to all present, asking the faithful to pray for the success and prosperity of the Holy Synod work, which will be held in Balamand next Wednesday, October 12.
