WATCH: “If wheat has already sprouted, then there is hope”… a priest’s poem for Easter

A poem by Fr Gilbert Scicluna contains a starting point from fields where wheat sprouted and grew in order to send a message of hope we dearly need.

In the poem, Fr Gilbert expressed his confidence that the moment will arrive for life to continue in a beautiful way.

This is the way it goes in Maltese:

“Jekk nibet diġà l-qamħ allura hemm tama

Li l-ħajja terġa’ lura għal li kienet

U artna trodd il-frott minkejja n-nixfa

Minkejja l-mard qalil li qed jaħkimna.”

In the video, the poem is read by Fr Mark Mallia Pawley, a friend of Fr Gilbert – the two were ordained priests together.
