Greatness in Humility

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

The figure of Saint Joseph is a modest one in the New Testament. Yet despite his silence and lack of detail with regards to his life and death he is a strong pillar from which one can draw many inspirations. I, for one, am never at a loss of ideas when it comes to preach about Jesus’ adoptive father. Something singular about him strikes me as I turn my thoughts and prayers towards him. In fact, I wish to share a simple reflection on the...

My Experience in Peru!

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

Following a six-month work phase with an EU institution in Brussels, I found myself boarding a series of planes en route to Iquitos, Peru, as my final destination. Little did I know what was in store for me! My first impression of Iquitos deceived me as I travelled along a nice tarmac road leading to the city, but as the motocarro (a hybrid between a motor and a car) took its first right, things changed.

Forming priests for the post-Trump era – Part 1

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

According to the Washington Post, Clinton and Trump raised slightly more than 2 billion dollars for their campaign for Presidency. The Seminary in Malta – crowdfunded from parishes – gets an average of €120,000 for the entire year. So it might sound stupid to explore how to prepare young people as priests for the post-Trump era. The impression one gets is that it is more catering for a niche market for the few people who still have Sunday mass...

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

That’s it. The Year of Mercy is ending and the doors will soon be closed. The celebrations have started with great fanfare in Malta and around the world, but now the time has come to find a new concept and buzz word, a new marketing stratagem to attract people. Well, that could be one way of seeing things which follows a marketing perspective whereby one constantly keeps offering new offers, products and needs. Another way could be that of...
