biblical events that took place in Lebanon and mention Lebanon as a Holy Land.
objective of the Sanctuaries Path is to make the visitor relive these events so
that he feels the holiness of the Lebanese Land, on which stepped the Christ and
booklet, published in several languages, accompanies the visitor on his
progression and help him think to find the message of each stop and how to apply
it in his daily life to respond faithfully to God’s call.
