• How is your prayer life?

    Pyt Farrugia

    “How is your prayer life?” sounds like a simple enough question but it can be surprisingly difficult to answer. It is an invitation to think about the time we take to talk with God, and to consider where we are in our relationship with God at this moment in our ...

  • When did you last meet Christ?

    Pyt Farrugia

    I met him most recently a few days ago, at the introductory session of a psychotherapy course. The facilitator’s ballerina flats tapped in time to the mundane flow of questions, which came from a large group of participants. No matter how many times she heard variations of the same questions, ...

  • Lil min tassew qed naqdu?

    Fr Michael Bugeja

    Meta spiċċajt minn kappillan San Ġużepp Ħaddiem Birkirkara, kien hemm min iddispjaċih u kien hemm ħafna iktar li ħadu r-ruħ. Fost dawn tal-aħħar kien hemm min straħ tassew li fl-aħħar seta’ jċapċap fil-knisja għax iċ-ċapċip fil-Knejjes ma narahx f’postu. Kemm-il darba, minħabba f’hekk, kien jerġa’ jibda jberren f’moħħi il-ħsieb li ...

  • We are not God

    Fr Gilbert Scicluna

I started rereading the book Heart of the World by Hans Urs von Balthasar, which begins by describing human persons as “Prisons of finitude”! This somewhat shocking statement is not ...

  • “Ajma!”

    Christine Galea

    It’s one of those Maltese interjections that are frustratingly impossible to translate accurately into the English language.  Not only. Even in our own language, it takes on a myriad of meanings, depending upon the tone in which it is expressed.   One could say that, in its simplest form, spoken in ...

  • Mixja ma’ Kristu bħala persuna LGBTIQ

    Drachma

    Forsi minħabba t-trobbija tagħna, ħafna minna jaħsbu li l-ispiritwalità u s–sesswalità huma għedewwa ta’ xulxin. Nażżarda ngħid li għal min jaqa’ taħt l-ispektrum tar-realtà gay din it-taqtigħa taf tkun aktar qawwija, speċjalment għal dawk li għadhom jaħsbu li l-imħabba bejn raġel u raġel, jew mara u mara, hi ħażina. Fil-każ ...
