• Busy-ness

    Matt Urpani

    Do you ever wake up in the morning and just think, “No. Today just… no”? Today was one of those days for me. I woke to a dozen messages on my phone from a number of people asking for this or that, things to post on my computer, laundry to ...

  • Mute: The unsaid words speaking volumes about our society

    Sara Zingariello

    I am a firm believer in the power and relevance of the unspoken narrative. In many situations, I find myself listening for the volumes of experience that people do not put words to. The hidden intentions behind every action; the buried emotion in every story; the stark reality we choose ...

  • An Elegy for Nostalgia

    Andrew Camilleri

    I’m not an old man, yet I still find myself slipping into the golden moments of my past. Smells, locations but most frequently songs will transport me instantly to cherished memories with an intensity that is overwhelming. Interestingly the memories, always seem to end in the bittersweet feeling of missing ...

  • Il-Makkjetta: Riċetta Maltija għall-Buri u l-Geddum

    Għaqda tal-Malti Università

    Għalkemm il-makkjetta x’aktarx bdiet lejn l-aħħar tas-seklu dsatax u l-bidu tas-seklu għoxrin, u għadha teżisti sal-lum il-ġurnata, qatt ma kienet intefgħet attenzjoni diretta fuqha u ġiet studjata mill-qrib. B’hekk ġara li ħafna materjal fuqha u fuq l-esponenti tagħha diġà ntilef, u dan kompla joħloq ritratt imċajpar tal-makkjetta minħabba n-nuqqas ta’ ...

  • Malta’s High Rise Mania

    John Paul Cauchi

    This year, Malta’s High Rise mania will get into full swing. Slowly slowly, over the next few years, our beloved skyline will be cluttered by an increase of tall shiny objects going ever skyward, most of which are incredibly unimaginative, or downright horrifying.

    Fr Mark Cachia sj

    I’m a Jesuit priest. And I love superhero films. I love them because of the action, the nerve-wracking twists and turn, the spectacular special effects. But I also love them because more often than not, they reveal to us, under the guise of a modern day parable, a portion of ...

  • A quest(ion) for 2018: The Joy in Suffering

    agara

    Rejoice in the Lord always (Philippians 4:4) is probably the simplest, most demanding command one could hope to respect. Always is not only something we increasingly shy away from, but to always rejoice almost implies we ought to be indifferent and naive to the circumstances we come across throughout our ...

  • Journeying in in-betweenness

    Nadia Delicata

    Before time itself got so compressed that life became fleeting, the New Year meant a list of life-changing resolutions. Whether our promises to ourselves were big or small, what was significant was the effort we made to take stock of our lives in the resolute belief that we could do ...
