Hello Pierre:

Congratulations for a beautiful website. I had looked at it few weeks ago by coincidence and was delighted to see that my beautiful village is on line. To introduce myself, I am Charles son of Salim Amine Hanna Sacre, my brothers are Amine and Jean. Our house is directly above the house of Dr. Habib Ziade, looking from the Sahat Road.

I mentioned the beautiful site to my friend and good pastor Msgr Lahoud who is the head of the Maronite parish in Boston and who also is from Kartaba, the brother of Fattan Lahoud. He too was delighted by the site.

Bravo Pierre; keep the good work.

I read that the Charity Association of Kartaba will have its dinner in the coming month of September at Kartaba. Please convey to my good friend Khoory Youssef Naoum Al-Muhtaram, all my repect and my best wishes.

I feel so proud of what you have done. The Web page on Kartaba is just what we need when we have been away for so long. This is excellent and i wish you could keep up the good work.

My name is Joseph Fouad Karam. I am from Kartaba and i am the guy who has been out for the past 26 years with the last 18 years of them in Dubai. Lately, i have started preparing my way back to Lebanon and built the house that you are showing as the last one on your "Album".

Good Luck and hope one day we'll meet in Kartaba.

Subject: requesting permission to use a few of your photos on our site.



I’m was really excited to see your site. Is so amazing that she is traveling around the world. I went to visit her relics when they came here to Portland, Oregon, USA. It was a tremendous experience
I work for a non-profit ministry and we have made a movie on the life of Saint Therese of Lisieux. We are trying to show the tremendous impact she has had throughout the world and would like to incorporate a two of your pictures from into our web site. Our hope is that Christ will use this movie to bring people closer to him through the intersession of his “little flower”. If you would like to help us in this effort then we would be very appreciative=
I can’t believe we found your site! I wish we had found it sooner because we are scheduled to launch our site January 16, 2003. That is why I need an immediate response. If you could please respond as soon as possible I will know whether or not to incorporate two of your pictures. I hope you say yes and join us in this effort
Thank you for taking the time to respond.

P.S. you can visit our temporary site if you would like at

Thanks again and I hope to hear from you tomorrow.

Subject: BRAVO Pierre




This is to congratulate you for a beautiful work about Kartaba. My name is Charles Salim Sacre. I am like you from Kartaba. My father Salim Amine Hanna Sacre lived near the Sahat, just above the house of Dr. Habib Ziade. You will recognize it by the three arches on the 2nd floor of the façade if you look upwards from the house of Dr. Ziade

I was reading a local lebanese newspaper and saw that Amioun - Koura has a web site. I did not find Amioun, but then my wife said to try Kartaba…and here you are. What a great idea…you had!

Now that I have your website. I will be regularly checking about the activities in the summer, the Club of Kartaba, and many other news


All the best

Sincerely Yours

Charles Salim Sacre
