In Lebanon, a Carmelite monastery attracts Christians and Muslims alike

At present the Christians of this country, the ‘Land of the Cedars’, make up around one third of the population. Their numbers had already seen a great decrease, ever since the Lebanese Civil War from 1975 to 1990, but there has been a mass emigration after the country’s political and economic crisis in October 2019 and again following the devastating explosion which tore through Beirut in August of 2020.
