This new year’s Festa ta’ Ġenerożità get under way

The Festa ta’ Ġenerożità on the first day of the new year got under way with a mass concelebrated by H.G. the Archbishop Charles J. Scicluna in the Home’s chapel and will go on till midnight tonight. At the beginning of the mass, which was atttended by the President of Malta, Dott, George Vella and Mrs Vella, there was the traditional Christmas homily made by Kate.

In his homily, Archbishop Scicluna dwelled on the five blessings that the national poet Dun Karm Psaila mentions in the National Anthem: wisdom, love, health, unity and peace. He augured that peace be in the hearts of all Maltese and Gozitans because whover does not nurture peace in his heart is a poor person indeed whilst those who endear peace in their heart end up being very rich.

Durin the concelebration of the mass, the Archbishop was assisted by Mgr Charles Cordina, Episcopal Vicar for Diaconia, Fr Josef Mifsud, Archpriest of Siġġiewi and Fr Martin Micallef, Director and Fr Trevor Fairclough, Spiritual Director of Id-Dar tal-Providenza.
