St Gorg Preca, a Maltese Saint.
We have a new stained glass window in our parish church, a memorial of St Gorg. Our parish has a large Maltese community.This stained glass window, along with another stained glass window representing St Michael, was blessed yesterday by the Bishop.
Our family helped organize the morning tea with the Bishop, after the Mass. I took along mud cakes, but didn’t get to try any, what with making sure teas and coffees were served and with all the little things one does at morning teas and at the clean up afterwards – at least I saved those calories! lol! And got to talk to many people…There was an abundance of food, much of the leftovers being taken home by another family with several children. They’ll feast this week! 🙂
St Gorg Preca was known by one of the older priests at the friary here. The Saint had a secial ministry for young people and set up The Society for Christian Doctrine, encouraging lay people to be catechists. This was, apparently, unheard of at the time ( 1907).
Deign to glorify your Servant Don George and, if it is according to your will, grant me through his intercession the favour I request ……. (here make your petition). Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
