Pope, Lebanon Christian leaders to discuss country's crisis

Francis and the patriarchs of Lebanon's various Christian groups walked from the Santa Marta residence where he lives into St. Peter's Basilica.

The pope, dressed in his white cassock, and the leaders, dressed in black, lit candles and prayed before the tomb of the St. Peter under the basilica's main altar.

The Roman Catholic, Maronite, Greek Orthodox, Armenian, Syrian Orthodox and Protestant Churches were among those represented.
