The pandemic should be a time to look inside ourselves – Archbishop Scicluna
The traditional Good Friday processions, carrying statues which represent Christ’s passion, were absent on roads in Maltese towns and villages.
Instead, a Via Crucis was held at the Archbishop Curia’s yard at Floriana where a specific environment was created for this holy day of devotion.
During these pandemic circumstances, there are those who feel abandoned by God and others who say this is a reprimand by God. Archbishop Scicluna was asked which is the truth.
The Archbishop quoted what Pope Francis recently said, that the pandemic is not a time for God’s judgement, but that we look at it as an invitation to look inside ourselves and to carry out the most important choices in life and examine what is essential.
