On Thursday, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Lebanon said it is time for the church there to assume a more prominent role in public life.

From the article:
Quote
The patriarch made his remarks during discussions with the Orthodox Gathering, which has recently resumed its efforts to boost the role of the community in Lebanese state institutions.

They got his title wrong though. He's the patriarch of Antioch, not Lebanon.
She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.

The news article does not use that title, the one who got is wrong is Biro in his summery of the article.

That's why I said sorry. I wasn't able to edit the post by the time I read the correction. And I'm "her."
