L-omelija tal-Arċisqof Charles Jude Scicluna

Fl-ewwel qari li nqara minn wieħed minnkom insibu dawn iż-żewġ ulied: Iżakk u Ismagħel it-tifel ta’ Ħagar li kienet seftura ta’ Sara u li l-Mulej ippermetta li Abraham ikollu iben minnha. Meta twieled Iżakk, Sara bdiet tħares bl-ikrah lejn Ħagar u t-tifel tagħha, u Abraham kellu jtellaq lill-omm u lit-tifel. Il-qari li smajna jikkonkludi li Alla ma abbandunax lit-tifel ta’ Ħagar, anzi jgħidilha: “Qum… Read more »

The hope of Peter and Paul in the Lord – The Archbishop

Mass on the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul

  St Paul's Cathedral, Mdina

L-omelija tal-Arċisqof Charles Jude Scicluna

“Issa naf tassew li l-Mulej bagħat l-anġlu tiegħu u ħelisni minn id Erodi u minn dak kollu li l-Lhud kienu qed jistennew li jsir” (Atti 12:11). Dan huwa kliem ta’ San Pietru meta jirrealizza li l-ħelsien tiegħu mill-ħabs ma kinitx ħolma imma realtà. “Issa naf tassew li l-Mulej bagħat l-anġlu tiegħu u ħelisni”. Fit-tieni qari smajna wkoll lill-Appostlu Missierna San Pawl jafda fil-qawwa tal-Mulej li jeħilsu: “Il-Mulej jeħlisni minn kull deni u jħarisni” (2 Tim 4:18)… Read more »

Clear with everyone – Bishop Galea-Curmi

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

L-omelija tal-Isqof Joseph Galea-Curmi

Hemm siltiet fl-Evanġelju fejn Ġesù qisu jkun f’burdata ħażina, xejn ma jogħġbu. Din tal-lum hi waħda minn dawn is-siltiet, fejn Ġesù, minħabba li kien imdawwar b’ħafna nies, lid-dixxipli jgħidilhom biex jaqsmu għax-xatt l-ieħor, imbagħad hemmhekk ikellmuh tnejn min-nies, l-ewwel wieħed mill-kittieba, u mbagħad wieħed mid-dixxipli tiegħu.

Lill-ewwel wieħed li jkellem lil Ġesù u jgħidlu “tmur fejn tmur, jien niġi warajk”, Ġesù, flok iħeġġu, kważi jaqtagħlu qalbu bil-mod kif ikellmu, qisu jitfilu l-ħeġġa tiegħu… Read more »

“Lord, you know everything”

Vigil Mass on the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul

  St Paul's Cathedral, Mdina

L-omelija tal-Arċisqof Charles Jude Scicluna

Ġesù jistaqsi lil Xmun Pietru: “‘Xmun bin Ġwanni, tħobbni int aktar minn dawn?’ ‘Iva, Mulej’” (Ġw 21:15). L-insistenza ta’ Ġesù fuq l-imħabba ta’ Pietru, li jġiegħel lil Pietru jindem u jirrealizza li l-imħabba tiegħu tistrieħ fuq il-ħarsa ta’ Ġesù. “Pietru ħass għafsa ta’ qalb għax staqsieh għat-tielet darba ‘Tħobbni?’ u qallu: ‘Mulej, int taf kollox, inti taf li nħobbok’” (Ġw 21:17)… Read more »
