Oh dear, we know that this 'liturgical play' phenomenon is as old as the liturgy itself (e.g. it survives in the Palm Sunday and Good Friday Liturgies), however, it no long forms part of the Latin Rite ouside of the Palm Sunday and Good Friday Liturgies. On the other hand, local custom is very strong, one reckons; the older the country, the more difficult it might be to remove.
Nevertheless, very interesting liturgical praxis here.

The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter is a Clerical Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical right, that is, a community of Roman Catholic priests who do not take religious vows, but who work together for a common mission in the world. The mission of the Fraternity is two-fold: first, the formation and sanctification of priests in the cadre of the traditional liturgy of the Roman rite, and secondly, the pastoral deployment of the priests in the service of the Church.

Il-Purcissjoni tal-Bambin (Procession of Baby Jesus) held at the Mosta Parish in 2011. Unfortunately half way of the procession, it rained so we could not bring you the procession entering the church and the clips we have were taken at a rather dark spot of Mosta.
Il-Purcissjoni tal-Bambin is a very popular traditional event in this country and it is held in about 66 towns and villages around Malta and Gozo. It was started by our beloved St Gorg Preca through his Society of Christian Doctrine (M.U.S.E.U.M) with the first procession held in Hamrun in 1921.
It was, is and will continue to be popular and many people join in to accompany the procession in which a statue of Baby Jesus is carried by children while everyone sings beautiful Maltese Christmas Carols including, of course, our "National" Christmas carol, Ninni la Tibkix Izjed (Sleep and cry no more) which was composed in by Fr Andrew Schembri (1744-1862) from Luqa for the Maltese migrants in Tunis.

It seems that at times Angels take the shape of humans and allow us to hear their heavenly voices via this human. One of these is the very young, 10 year old American singer, Jackie Evancho. This is "O Holy Night" as interpreted nicely and heavenly by Jackie.
O Holy Night" ("Cantique de Noël") is a well-known Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the French poem "Minuit, chrétiens" (Midnight, Christians) by Placide Cappeau (1808--1877), a wine merchant and poet, who had been asked by a parish priest to write a Christmas poem.
Evancho's first release on a major record label was a Columbia Records EP entitled O Holy Night. It was released on November 16, 2010, and reached rank #1 on Amazon's bestsellers in music during pre-orders on October 19, 2010. It was ranked #3 for the entire year 2010 on Amazon.
"O Holy Night" entered the Billboard 200 at #2, making Evancho the top-selling debut artist for 2010 and the youngest solo artist ever to debut in the top 10. On December …More

"The Bells Never Sounded Sweeter than on Christmas Day" performed by James Last and his Orchestra. It's beautiful, peaceful and relaxing.
This truly beautiful and peaceful German Christmas Carol dates back to 1850. The melody of "Süßer die Glocken nie klingen" was borrowed by Friedrich Wilhelm Kritzinger, the author of the lyrics, from a traditional Thuringian harvest song entitled "Dort sinket die Sonne im Westen" ("There the sun sets in the west").

We are including two version of the Anthem: An instrumental version and a vocal one sung by Malta's famous singer, Enzo Gusman.
Photos shown are all taken by my wife, Choy Hong (Jasmine) Grech.
We dedicate this Hymn to all the Maltese especially to those living abroad.
From the mid 19th century up to the early 1930s, Malta was passing through a national awakening. With the increased national awareness, it was felt by many thinkers that Malta should have its own National Anthem.
In 1850 Ġan Anton Vassallo composed Innu Lil Malta, which used to be played during many Maltese political manifestations and meetings. In 1922, Professor Mro. Robert Samut composed a short melody. A year later, Dr A.V. Laferla, Director of Primary …More

Ġej il-Maltemp ((A Storm is Coming), a sad but true and realistic narration about the weather storms and life's storms that hit humanity, nicely sung/narrated by Malta's famous singer, Freddie Portelli.
Briefly, the singer warns us to be careful because a storm is approaching and urges us to seek refuge. He speaks of terrorism, theft, murders that some cruel people commit. He speaks of the news we read daily on the newsletters about dictators, tsunamis, mine disasters, pollution and other problems.
The video clips showing Freddie "live" were superimposed by us and they are not a "live" performance of this song. Sound effects were also added by us.
Video clips of him singing and the music have been used with Freddie's permission. Please share link with friends and would appreciate it if you give us thumb up if you like the song and video. Thank you.

The wood statue of "Il-Bambina" was brought from Rome at the beginning of the 20th Century. The canopy and crown over the statue were made in 1923.
There are two Band Clubs in Naxxar: The Ġħaqda Mużikali Vittorja, Est 1916 and the Peace Band Club. Both are very active in the Parish.
