On Sunday 24th January 2010, Archbishop Paul Cremona O.P., on the occasion of the third anniversary of his Episcopal Ordination, celebrated a thanksgiving mass at St. John’s Co-Cathedral, Valletta, at 5.30pm.

The Archbishop thanked Christ for granting him with constant fortitude. He also took the opportunity to thank all those who in any way help with passing on the pastoral message in their communities. Archbishop Cremona reminded everyone that on that day, three special occassions were being celebrated: St. Paul’s conversion to Catholicism, his 64th birthday and the anniversary of his episcopal ordination.

Archbishop Paul Cremona O.P. said that every year God illuminates him with new tasks to carry out. This year his main task will be that of showing his flock how God is presented to us. He said that he will be focusing on three main principles: that the human is in God’s center, that man is the ambassador of God’s love and man has to resemble God in every way.

The Archbishop concluded by saying that this year we are blessed since we will be celebrating St. Paul’s shipwreck to Malta with the visit of Pope Benedict XVI. Thus, he said, for this reason we have to prepare ourselves and do our best to be the epithomy of love to one another.
