‘Living double lives is a disservice to God’s purpose for life’ – Mons. Mario Grech

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

When people gossip to hurt each other and when people use moral violence against each other they are doing a disservice towards the Church of God, towards Christianity and towards God’s purpose for life.

Mons. Mario Grech said these words during the mass on the occasion of Ash Wednesday, held at the Gozo Cathedral.

The Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Gozo, Bishop Mario Grech celebrated the mass to mark the beginning of Lent which gave the start of the 40 days of reflection and preparation for the celebration of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Mons. Grech explained how it is important that the Church and its followers adapt to the changing society. “Our lives need to engage in a process of continuous change and this applies also to Christian lives”, said Mario Grech

He then explained how society perceives money as the fulcrum of our lives and that has cursed the way a community can grow spiritually by putting money as a basic need for happiness. Mons. Grech said that during Lent we can recreate our path to christianity irrespective of one’s mistakes.

The Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Gozo, Bishop Mario Grech concluded his message for Lent 2020 wishing for the 40 days of reflection to be a time where people experience the beauty of God’s mercy and listen to the message of God.
