Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The latest number of Il-Ħajja f’Għawdex has been designated a special edition to mark the appointment and installation of the new Bishop of Gozo Anton Teuma, as well as the departure to Rome of his predecessor Bishop Mgr Mario Grech to take up his new post as Secretary-General of the Synod of Bishops at the Vatican.

Most of the illustrated content covers various aspects in the lives and work of the two bishops, including their family background, education, and the previous posts they held in the Diocese. There are also pen portraits of both bishops by people who worked closely with them in various contexts.

Other items concern the first anniversary of the demise of the ‘father of Maltese publications’, namely, Pawlu Mizzi, and  the linguist and writer Ninu Cremona, a national figure, with an appeal for the proper rehabilitation and maintenance of the latter’s grave at the local cemetery. Other articles explore the cult of Saint Joseph on the island, and the connection between the Church and sports.
