I denounce this type of attack and urge people to remain calm," said Archbishop
Mor Yostinos Paulos Safar Safar, who hails from neighboring Syria and is bishop
of Zahle, a mainly Christian town about 50 kilometers (30 miles) from the
capital Beirut.

Archbishop, Mor Yostinos, who inspected the damage accused "faithless people" of
being behind the blast. "The explosion targets Lebanon and
its security stability." He said he planned to hold Sunday mass at the church
despite the attack.

"As far as possible never do evil to anyone: or it will ruin you, your children
and your house. Hold on steadfastly to prayer, fasting and works of charity.
Do them with faith and devotion ".

Lord, have mercy. 
Let us hope and pray that this isn't the first in a series of attacks.
