I didn’t choose perfect people – Bishop Galea-Curmi

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

L-omelija tal-Isqof Joseph Galea-Curmi

“Għadda l-lejl fit-talb lil Alla” (Lq 6:12). Dan hu li naqraw illum fl-Evanġelju skont San Luqa fuq Ġesù, li tela’ fuq l-għoljiet waħdu, u għamel ħin twil hemmhekk jitlob. Ma kinetx l-unika darba li Ġesù mar waħdu biex jitlob. San Luqa jgħidilna fl-Evanġelju tiegħu fuq l-importanza tat-talb għal Ġesù, u fuq kif Ġesù kien ukoll għallem lid-dixxipli tiegħu kif jitolbu. Imma din iċ-ċirkustanza kienet speċjali, għax wara dak il-ħin ta’ talb, meta sebaħ, l-ewwel ma għamel Ġesù hu li sejjaħ lejh id-dixxipli tiegħu… Read more »

Jesus came to Seek and Save the Lost – Bishop Galea-Curmi

Mass on the 31st Sunday of the year

  The Parish Church of the Annunciation, Ħal Balzan

L-omelija tal-Isqof Joseph Galea-Curmi

Il-ġrajja tal-laqgħa ta’ Żakkew ma’ Ġesù tista’ tinġabar fl-aħħar sentenza tal-Evanġelju: “Bin il-bniedem ġie biex ifittex u jsalva l-mitluf” (Luqa 19:10). Tajjeb li nħarsu lejn din il-ġrajja u naraw x’tgħidilna għal ħajjitna. Inħarsu l-ewwel lejn il-folla, imbagħad lejn Żakkew u Ġesù.

Il-folla

Il-folla tan-nies li kienet imdawra ma’ Ġesù kienet ostaklu għal Żakkew biex jiltaqa’ miegħu imma anke biex jarah… Read more »
