• D-Day: 9th March 2013

    David Cilia

    Elections should be a natural democratic process in a free society where citizens, affiliatively organized in political parties, compete with alternative programs of government to attract the approval of the majority of their fellow citizens. In a highly polarized, practically bi-partisan, society as ours, election day has become D-Day.  Nerves ...

  • On Nature and its Expressions

    Nadia Delicata

    As I flipped mindlessly through the channels after a busy day, a reality show chronicling the pregnancy and birth story of a couple caught my attention somewhat. At first I thought it was the “regular” (though nothing is quite “regular” on television, is it?) incredible story about a mystery pregnancy ...

  • Sleeping God

    Christopher Bezzina

    If we examine the present challenging subjects for the Catholic Church we have a consensus that gay rights is a huge stumbling block. Amidst this intense tempest-like advocacy for the protection of the traditional family or for equal rights I must say I imagine God enjoying a nice nap. Not ...

  • Of ghouls, squash and (wo)men in red

    Nadia Delicata

    Among the less-celebrated joys of living in the Great White North is the predictability of the yearly calendar. Humid lazy summers lull you into sipping white wine while enjoying long barbecues with friends. Likewise, the frigid, desolate, hibernating winters make you seek the pleasures of hot cocoa while curled up ...

  • Is Hannukka the Jewish “Christmas”?

    Sophia

    The Hebrew word ‘Hanukkah’ literally means ‘dedication’ and its story takes us back to the events of the 2nd century BCE as described in the deuterocanonical books of 1 and 2 Maccabees. The eight-day festival begins on the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev, which normally falls somewhere ...

  • Life is a Journey not a Destination…

    Nigel Camilleri

    Upon pausing for a moment and looking back at what inspired me into entering into my profession I realise it was a journey which started long before I was even conscious of it. It was a journey which, over many years and after experiences of volunteering in different countries got ...
