Lent & Holy Week at the Priory

Solemn observance leading up to Easter Sunday

“Live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age…”
 (Titus 2:11-14)

Reġgħet magħna l-Ġimgħa Mqaddsa. Fil-Karmnu tal-Imdina ħejjejna ruħna għal din il-Ġimgħa permezz tas-smiegħ fit-tala tal-Kelma ta’ Alla kemm permezz tal-omelija ta’ kuljum kif ukoll bl-irtiri minn diversi gruppi, l-irtir fuq is-Salmi Penitenzjali, il-qari tal-kitbiet ta’ Santa Marija Maddalena de’ Pazzi u b’diversi affarijiet oħra li jgħinuna niffukaw fuq l-essenzjal fil-ħajja tagħna u jiftħulna qalbna għall-oħrajn, bħal bl-għoti tal-karità u s-sawm.

Ma’ din l-ittre issibu mehmuż il-Programm għall-festi tal-Għid u fl-istess ħin nistednukom sabiex tissieħbu magħna għal-Liturġija ta’ Ħamis ix-Xirka fis-6pm, tal-Ġimgħa l-Kbira fit-3pm u ta’ Sibt il-Għid fit-8pm. Barra minnhekk nhar l-Erbgħa tal-Ġimgħa Mqaddsa wara l-quddiesa tal-5.30pm ikollna ċelebrazzjoni madwar is-Salib tal-Mulej.

Bħas-soltu intom imħeġġa tieħdu sehem mal-komunità fit-talb ta’ filgħodu u ta’ nofs il-jum matul it-Tridu tal-Għid. F’Sibt il-Għid filgħodu niċċelebraw l-hekk imsejħa s-Siegħa tal-Addolorata, madwar ix-xbieha ta’ Kristu mejjet u d-dilka tal-Altar bil-fwejjaħ u l-mirra. Infakkrukom ukoll fl-Erbgħat tal-Madonna tal-Karmnu li jibdew char l-Erbgħa fuq l-Għid. Fit-tielet Erbgħa jqaddes Mons. Arċisqof u li jmexxi wkoll il-kitba fil-Labtu tal-Madonna tal-Karmnu. Inħeġġukom tkomplu ssegwuna fuq il-website u l-paġna facebook biex tkunu aġġornati dwar l-attivitajiet tal-Ġimgħa Mqaddsa.



Another Lenten Season is approaching, preparing us for the essential celebration of the Church’s calendar; the heart of all Christian life: the Paschal Mystery. It marks the mystery of the Risen Crucified Lord, who lives in those who welcome his invitation to follow him. Lent prepares us for the Paschal newness of life through a forty-day period of prayer, fasting, and alms-giving in a spirit of charity.

For Lent we have quite a programme of activities going on. On Ash Wednesday, 1st March, the rite of ashes will be celebrated during the 7.00 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. Mass. At 6.45 a.m. we will have, as usual, the daily celebration of Morning Prayers (Lauds). Ash Wednesday falls also on the first Wednesday of the month, therefore we will have silent Adoration after the 5.30pm Mass followed by the Third Order meeting. At 5.00 p.m. there is the communal celebration of the Via Crucis. For the Lenten Season a brief homily will be delivered during Mass. This will be uploaded online to enable more people to follow it daily.

In Lent we celebrate the Solemnity of St. Joseph, on March 20th. Then on March 25th we will celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord, titular of our Church in Mdina.

Every year during Lent and Easter we suggest some texts for reading and meditation. This year we invite you to read along with us selected texts from the writings of St. Mary Magdalene de ‘Pazzi as we celebrate 450 years of her birth.

L-Omelija ta’ Ras ir-Randan

Fil-bidu ta’ dan ir-Randan ejjew ninsew dak li diġà nafu dwar dan iż-żmien. Ejja ninsew li rridu nsumu, li rridu nitolbu, li rridu nagħtu karità. U dan mhux biex ma nagħmlux karità, ma nsumux u ma nitolbux, imma biex ikollna ħarsa friska lejn il-qalba ta’ dan iż-żmien sabiħ li sfortunatament faċli jaħarbilna minn taħt għajnejna.
