Archbishop Charles J. Scicluna is celebrating thanksgiving Mass for the year just passed at St. John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta.
The homily focused on the naming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The eight-day after the birth of the Saviour in the Bethlehem.
We need to lift our selves from our sins said the Archbishop. He reiterated the prayer by Saint Gorg Preca “My Lord I need you.”
Archbishop Charles J. Scicluna hopes that 2021 will be a good year, “we need to make our part.” He said this in reference to the pandemic while appealing to act responsibly and observe the directives.
Let us keep in mind that we will have to be judged on how we acted towards others in our judgement said the leader of the Maltese Catholic Church.
He once again appealed for solidarity to support and care for each other through these times. People lost loved ones, suffered with their health, lost jobs and are suffering said the Archbishop.
“We need to care for each other like true Christians” said the leader of the Maltese church.
A name that reflects Jesus’ mission amongst us. Scicluna explained that the Lord not only wanted to be amongst us but he wanted to be part of us. His chosen names reflect this. Emmanuel which means “God is with us” and Jesus which in Aramaic means “God is the Saviour.”
He said that what we pray to our Lord in the Lord’s prayer we need to practice in everyday life.
Mass is being co-celebrated with auxiliary Archbishop Joseph Galea-Curmi.
