Maltese Group Retreat and Mass in Mdina, Malta

Written by Group of Malta   

The Monastery of the Benedictine nuns of St. Peter, in the Medieval city of Mdina Notabile, Malta, was recently the venue of a half-day Lent retreat for the Maltese group of Constantinian Knight and Dames. Mass was celebrated by the group's chaplain, Rev. Mons. Aloysius Deguara, Dean of the Cathedral Chapter. During Mass, the chaplain invited those present to reflect on this holy period in the liturgical year, and provided some practical ways and means how to practice membership in this noble and ancient Order both at home and in the workplace. He emphasised that our mantle and decoration should not be just an ornament, but a means to remind one of one's commitments and obligations to the Order. For example, he proposed hospital visits or to retreat houses, apart from giving alms and donations.

It is interesting to note that, despite the small size of this newly-formed group, all members attended with their spouses and children. This retreat served also as an occasion where the members could meet as a single community. Afterwards, the Mother Abbess of the monastery, Sr. Adeodata Testaferrata, led the group to the rooms of the Blessed Adeodata Pisani who was beatified by HH Pope John Paul II in 2001.

The retreat was followed by lunch at a nearby restaurant.
