L-omelija tal-Arċisqof Charles Jude Scicluna

Ġesù kien mistieden għat-tieġ. Nawguralkom li fost il-ħafna mistednin jew il-ftit li se jkollkom, tinkludu wkoll lil Ġesù. Ħa navżakom, se jġib lil ommu; ma kellux kunjata, toqogħdux tinkwetaw.

The Greek term tekton, used to specify Joseph’s work, has been translated in various ways… Read more »
