Archbishop Charles Scicluna announced this morning that he is providing a donation to Floriana Archpriest to begin rebuilding the St Publius Arch.
The announcement of the donation appeared on the Archbishop’s Twitter a few hours ago. Many people are describing the burning of the arch as a ‘cruel act.’
