The Archbishop expressed his gratitude towards Health Minister Chris Fearne, the Superintendent for Public Health Prof. Charmaine Gauci and all healthcare workers who have and are still working hard to maintain the pandemic under control.

The Archbishop continued to explain that during these times we more than ever need the spirit of healing and the spirit of learning, that is educating ourselves about coronavirus.

He also referred to the present COVID-19 situation and said that health authorities have the responsibility to provide us with guidelines which society needs to abide by to be able to protect each other. “In all they do health authorities follow the latest scientific information available but if a ship sails with too many captains, then it would not sail in the right direction” – stated Archbishop Scicluna.

The Archbishop also appealed to the authorities to engage in a holistic approach in these extraordinary times so that we do not only heal from physical pain but also heal psychologically and spiritually.
