Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Archbishop of Malta Charles J Scicluna said that we must consider what Pope Francis on the gift of sexuality.

Talking to Malta’s Heart 103, Archbishop Scicluna discussed the challenge that the Maltese Church has in producing an attractive package for young adults.

He said that adolescence is a delicate phase in one’s life. It is a time meant for the exploration of one’s sexuality. At the same time, young adults are being “bombarded” by social media stimuli that are not always best intended.

Mgr. Scicluna said that young adults tend to abandon the Church following Confirmation. They see the sacrament as a graduation certificate from faith.

The discussion also touched the inauguration of the saferoom at the cathedral museum in Mdina. The safe room allows persons with autism to feel safe should they feel disoriented with the museum environment.

The newly published book penned by the Archbishop “Religion and the 1921 Malta Constitution” was the final topic discussed. Mgr. Scicluna, happily elaborated that his last body of work finds its genesis in the thesis that he presented at university in 1986 as part fulfilment of his legal degree.
