Ir-Raba’ Ħadd tal-Avvent

Posted by in Featured Post, The Seminary's blog | 0 comments

Xejn la tibża’ – Mt 1:18-24 Fl-Evanġelju ta’ San Luqa, ir-rakkonti tal-infanzja ta’ Ġesù huma ċentrati mal-figura ta’ Marija. Ir-rakkonti tal-infanzja fis-silta ta’ San Mattew li naqraw fir-raba’ Ħadd tal-Avvent huma ċentrati madwar il-figura ta’ Ġużeppi, l-għarus ta’ Marija li jaċċetta lil Ġesù bħala l-iben tiegħu. Ġużeppi ġej min-nisel ta’ David, u huwa permezz tiegħu li Ġesù jappartjeni għal dan in-nisel. Għalhekk huwa f’Ġesù li...

F’lejl ta’ xitwa ġewwa Betlem

“F’lejl ta’ xitwa ġewwa Betlem…” Le! Mhux iżjed f’Betlehem… jew tal-anqas mhux f’Betlehem biss. M’għadux jitwieled F’Betlehem biss. Fil-Milied ma nfakkrux twelidu hemm biss.

They started off the day with a Mass celebrated in the Airport Chapel,...

Seminarians hooked me to the virtual. I hope that’s not because they got tired from hearing me for real. So here I am to welcome you to the Seminary reality. What are we about? The lauching of the website comes in the middle of many activities at our Seminary in Rabat (Malta): signing the collective agreement with our employees, a splendid Christmas village organized by the Minor Seminary school commnity, an evening of reflection, humour and...

Do they know its Christmas time?

Posted by in Featured Post | 0 comments

This year at the Seminary there is quite an unusual nativity scene. No Mary and Joseph, no fair-skinned Baby Jesus and no sheep either. Instead, on one side, a beacon, below which is a red life jacket lying and an empty beer bottle lying on rocks. To the right a fishing boat, with nets spread over its sides. In the centre, on a pallet holding some hay and fishing nets, lies Baby Jesus. On 8 July on his visit in Lampedusa, Pope Francis...
