Tuesday 9 October 2012 - The Patriarch of Antioch of the Melkite Greek Catholics, Gregorios III (Laham), Head of the Synod of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church, spoke twice: first to ask for more continuous contact between all the Churches; and then to say that Catholics in the Near and Middle East must have the courage to present their faith even in the most dangerous situations. Referring to the current state of affairs in that part of the world, the Patriarch said that the values expressed in the Gospel can also be an important contribution: "a good programme," he said, for the so-called Arab Spring.
