Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Dun Anton who became the ninth Bishop of Gozo has been described as humble and intelligent by fellow Gozitans.

On Friday, the Diocese of Gozo held the Episcopal Consecration of Mgr Anton Teuma.

Newsbook.com.mt went to Gozo asking people their opinion on the new bishop. Our journalists visited Xagħra where Mgr Teuma grew up and Victoria close to the John Paul II Institute For The Family where he has served throughout the recent years since he was appointed as the Bishop’s delegate for families.

One of the respondents has likened Mgr Teuma to Pope Francis. He maintained that the new bishop is the right man to lead the Church in Gozo during the current challenging times.

Others have described Mgr Teuma as a hardworking individual, while another person said that like his predecessors, the new bishop has a lot of work ahead of him to continue helping those in need.
