The pictures of Archbishop Paul Cremona of Malta in cappa magna currently appearing online reminded me that I still have a handful of photos from Malta that I wanted to share with you. I found those pictures online during the past years (can't even remember where) and I don't really know anything about them other than they were all taken in different Maltese cities. I've only been to Malta once so far but I will go there again. Because as far as Catholicism goes, this little island has got it all:

Our Lady

The Ombrellone

Street decorations



Illuminated churches

Red damask


And, of course: The cappa magna!

Paul Cremona on Feb 9th during first Vespers for the feast of the shipwreck of Saint Paul. Those are the most current ones and you've probably already seen them on NLM or elsewhere.

Two more photos of Archbishop Cremona...

... date and occasion unknown.

Two shots you might already have seen on the old "Far Sight": Archbishop Cremona again...

... and his predecessor, Giuseppe Mercieca.

Great photos. Btw I hear Malta doesn't have the TLM.
