  • [01] MARONITE ARCHBISHOP - CONFERENCE

    The Maronite Archbishop of Cyprus Youssef Soueif has highlighted the problems and challenges faced by young Maronites in Cyprus and the need to maintain contact with their Turkish occupied villages. Speaking at a press conference on the results of the 11th meeting of the Presidents of Bishops conferences of South-East Europe held in Cyprus, he said they had a very nice and warm meeting with the President of the Republic Demetris Christofias, adding that President Christofias appreciated very much the Presidents of Bishops conference here and attached great importance to it.

    The President told the Maronite Archbishop that he understands very well the difficulties faced by the Maronites in Cyprus and expressed the hope for the reunification of all communities of the island, according to Soueif. President Christofias, Soueif added, explained the Cyprus problem and all its aspects. Archbishop Soueif assured the President that all of them will remember Cyprus and pray for a just and peaceful solution for the country. He added that faced with such a situation all communities on the island must respect and help each other.

    We must keep alive every single community because with every single community we keep alive the traditions and culture of Cyprus, he said. Answering a question about the specific problems of Maronite youth, the Archbishop said that after the 1974 Turkish invasion, the Maronites are refugees, living in a different social environment away from their villages, something that creates challenges for young Maronites as well. He stressed the importance for young Maronites to discover their identity.

    The basic element of the identity is to be open, in all the categories and all communities of Cyprus, contributing to the culture of love, peace and reconciliation in the country and being in contact with our villages, he noted.
