The Maronite Patriarch Hearts Sen. Kennedy

"Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir conveyed during Sunday's sermon his condolences over the death of U.S. Senatro Edward Kennedy to his wife of Lebanese origins lawyer Victoria Reggie Kennedy and to U.S. President Barack Obama. Speaking from Deeman, Sfeir praised Kennedy as one of the U.S. politics' "significant faces." "The deceased was known for his brave stances. He had the courage to speak the truth and earned the title of the Senate's lion."" (thanks David)
