Mount Lebanon, February 9, 2017: Lebanese Christian Maronite father Hani Taouk leads a mass on the ski slopes of the Cedars mountains, celebrating the Feast of Saint Maron. Also spelled St. Maroun, the patron saint of Lebanon, was a monk who died in 410 C.E. After his death, his disciples, the forefathers of the Maronite Christian sect, migrated from his namesake monastery in Syria to Mount Lebanon, where a large segment of Maronite Christians are settled today.

The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
13 planted in the house of the Lord,
they will flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green,
15 proclaiming, “The Lord is upright;
he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”

Psalm 92:12-15
