MESSAĠĠ LILL-E.T. MONS. ISQOF GIOVANNI CEFAI MSSP FL-OKKAŻJONI TAL-ORDINAZZJONI EPISKOPALI TIEGĦU

 bishop-giovanni-cefai.jpg

Fl-okkażjoni tal-Konsagrazzjoni Episkopali tal-Isqof Għawdxi Mons. Giovanni Cefai MSSP illum 22 ta’ Ġunju 2019 fl-10.00am (5.00pm, ħin ta’ Malta) fil-Katidral ta’ Arequipa, il-Perù, l-E.T. Mons. Mario Grech, Isqof ta’ Għawdex, bagħatlu dan il-Messaġġ ta’ Awguri biex jinqara waqt il-Quddiesa tal-Ordinazzjoni:

Bħal kull 22 ta’ Ġunju, dalgħodu l-qniepen tal-knejjes f’Għawdex daqqew għalenija biex ifakkru li 136 sena ilu, mill-Kappella Ta’ Pinu, il-Verġni Mbierka fetħet djalogu ta’ mħabba ma’ Karmni Grima u Franġisk Portelli, liema djalogu għadu għaddej illum mal-eluf ta’ pellegrini li jterrqu lejn dan is-Santwarju.

Imma dalgħodu l-qniepen tal-knejjes ta’ din id-djoċesi għannew ukoll għax illum wieħed minn uliedha, int, għażiż Patri Giovann, ser tirċievi l-Ordinazzjoni Episkopali u hekk tingħaqad mal-Kulleġġ tal-Appostli. Għalina dan huwa motiv ta’ ferħ kbir; imma aħna konxji wkoll li din il-ġrajja lilna tgħabbina bir-responsabbiltà li nkomplu nweżnuk kif nistgħu, speċjalment bit-talb tagħna, iktar u iktar meta inti isqof-missjunarju li l-Knisja sejħitlek biex tqiegħed il-pedament ta’ djoċesi ġdida.

L-isfidi li għandek ma humiex żgħar, imma niżgurak mill-esperjenza tiegħi: Alla ser jagħtik il-“grazzja tal-istat” ġdid li inti għandek; din il-verità jien fhimtha biss meta ġarrabtha, u hekk nawgura lilek.

F’isem il-poplu ta’ Alla f’Għawdex nifraħlek tassew, u filwaqt li llum nafdak f’dirgħajn il-Madonna Ta’ Pinu, nitolbok tagħtina l-barka episkopali tiegħek mill-Perù.

Insellem lil ħija fl-episkopat l-E.T. Mons. Javier del Río Alba, Arċisqof ta’ Arequipa, lil Patri Mark Grima MSSP, is-Superjur Ġenerali tas-Soċjetà Missjunarja ta’ San Pawl, u lill-foqra kollha li ħejjewk għal din l-għażla.

“We need to dialogue with the Muslim world” - Bishop Grech

bunson-fatima.jpgOPEN LETTER TO CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS ON THE OCCASION OF THE MARIAN YEAR

As time goes by we are progressively seeing an ever increasing number of foreigners living and working among us. It would be really silly of us to think of them as a threat or as a purely economic resource. It is a real pity that there are those among us who are tempted to regard them as some kind of inferior class of people and so they despise them even with violent acts or they take advantage of their vulnerability. This is the case when they are exploited by being made to work for a pittance without the benefit of social security as required by law, or when they are offered shelter at rental rates far higher than is normally the case.

Their presence among us does not constitute simply a social and cultural challenge, but it has also a religious dimension. Indeed among these foreigners there is a sizeable presence of Muslims, both those coming from African countries and those from Eastern Europe…
