Archbishop Charles J. Scicluna has ended a pastoral visit in London where he led a celebration of Our Lady of Victories on the occasion of the Malta Day in the UK. While in London, Mgr Scicluna also visited Maltese patients being medically treated in hospitals.
Our Lady of Victories feast celebration was held at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday as part of activities organised by the Maltese High Commission in London, in collaboration with Maltese societies in the UK.
During the Homily, Archbishop Scicluna said that while we celebrate the victories in sieges that Malta passed through, we should also pray for the victory on the sieges that today’s society is facing.
The Archbishop mentioned, among others, the need to defend family values, to safeguard the human dignity and that we should continue to pass over values and faith to future generations.
During his London visit, Mgr Scicluna visited Maltese patients at the Royal Marsden Hospital Sutton and Fulham, Great Ormond Street Hospital and National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
The Archbishop also celebrated Mass at the Great Ormond Street hospital chapel, where he prayed for the Maltese patients and baptized a Maltese baby. He also visited the Maltese at Puttinu Cares apartments.
