Shock of The Day

I attended the big smell and bells NO Mass this morning in St. John's Co-Cathedral, about ten priests con-celebrating with the acting apostolic administrator, His Lordship Mgr Charles J. Scicluna, Titular Bishop of San Leone, several deacons, who I assume are seminarians, and the full, fantastic formal choir.

This was the diocesan celebration for All Saints' Day.

How many people in the congregation? About 47, shocking.

So goes the Catholicism of Malta, falling into ennui and neglect.

The choir was superb. Here is what they sound like. Not today, of course, but in a concert.

Sad days for Malta.
