We should appreciate all that is good in our families, our NGOs and our people as a nation. We should cherish as well life from its inception as it is because to have a right to live and be precious you don’t have to be perfect. Archbishop Scicluna praised the generosity that the Maltese have shown a few days ago in l-Istrina and urged that that same generosity and solidarity is also shown during the Festa ta’ Ġenerożità in aid of Id-Dar tal-Providenza.
