Jordan’s Tourism and Antiquities Minister is on a tour to Lebanon to pave ways for religious tourism co-operation between the two nations. He visited the Jrebta St. Joseph Monastery on Monday where the St. Rafka shrine is situated, in the district of Batroun.
Monastery head Melanie Maksoud greeted the Minister.
Speaking to reporters afterwards, Enab said that, she is currently on a visit to Lebanon, to have a closer look at the significant religious sites across Lebanon.
“The visit comes in the framework of bolstering exchange between Lebanon and Jordan, at the level of religious tourism,” she said.
“Tourism means to build bridges of love and peace, and there is nothing as beautiful as the religious spirituality bridge, which can connect people to each other,” she added.
After touring the various sectors of the Monastery and St Rafka’s shrine and museum, Minister Enab listened to a briefing on the life of St. Rafka and the history of the Monastery.
