Pope at Audience: God blesses us despite our sins

Dear brothers and sisters, good morning!

Today we will reflect on an essential dimension of prayer: blessing. We are continuing the reflections on prayer. In the creation accounts (see Gn 1-2), God continually blesses life, always. He blesses the animals (1:22), He blesses the man and the woman (1:28), finally, He blesses the Sabbath, the day of rest and the enjoyment of all of creation (2:3)… Read more »

The Archbishop inaugurates and blesses the new premises

  The office of the Malta Guide Dogs Foundation, Santa Venera

L-Arċisqof Charles Jude Scicluna inawgura uffiċċju ġdid tal-Malta Guide Dogs Foundation (MGDF) nhar it-Tnejn 30 ta’ Diċembru.

The questions we should ask at the beginning of Advent – The Archbishop

  The Chapel of Our Lady of Manresa at the Archbishop's Curia, Floriana

L-omelija tal-Arċisqof Charles Jude Scicluna

Biex nifhmu l-għażla tal-Evanġelju fiż-żmien tal-Avvent, dan l-istaġun li qegħdin fih, irridu nħarsu u nisimgħu b’attenzjoni l-ewwel qari. F’ħafna mill-jiem tal-Avvent, l-ewwel qari hu meħud mill-ktieb sabiħ ħafna tal-profeta Iżaija. Illum, pereżempju, fil-bidu smajna profezija sabiħa ta’ Iżaija li hija wkoll mument sabiħ ta’ poeżija straordinarja fil-Bibbja.

Illum smajna l-profezija tal-għerq ta’ Ġesse u wkoll id-doni tal-ispirtu: “Fuqu jistrieħ l-ispirtu tal-Mulej, l-ispirtu tal-għerf u d-dehen, l-ispirtu tal-għaqal u l-qawwa, l-ispirtu tal-għerf u l-biża’ tal-Mulej, u l-għaxqa tiegħu fil-biża’ tal-Mulej” (Iż 11:2-3)… Read more »

Leading people to Jesus – Bishop Galea-Curmi

Mass on the feast of St Andrew

  The Chapel of Our Lady of Manresa at the Archbishop's Curia, Floriana

L-omelija tal-Isqof Joseph Galea-Curmi

Sant’Andrija kien sajjied minn Betsajda fil-Galilija, flimkien ma’ ħuh Pietru. Fl-Evanġelju qrajna din is-silta meta Ġesù jsejħilhom biex minn sajjieda jagħmilhom “sajjieda tal-bnedmin”. Imma fl-Evanġelju ta’ San Ġwann (Ġw 1:35-42) għandna rakkont sabiħ ħafna meta jkun hu, Indrì, li jiltaqa’ ma’ Ġesù. Kien dixxiplu ta’ Ġwanni l-Battista, u meta dan uriehom lil Ġesù u qalilhom “Araw il-Ħaruf ta’ Alla”, hu mexa warajh, qagħad miegħu, għarfu bħala l-Messija… Read more »
