“An unforgettable, humbling, soul touching, incredible eye-opening, spiritual experience!”.  At the risk of sounding rather bombastic this is what in a nutshell #mission2ethiopia_2015 was for us, a group of five Gozitan youths hailing from St George’s Parish who decided earlier on this year to embark on a new adventure, very different and perhaps much more daring than the ones we had immersed ourselves into, previously in our lives.

Today is April 23, the liturgical solemnity of St George, Patron Saint of Gozo.  Devotees of the saint around the globe celebrate the day of his martyrdom, in a time of great persecution against Christians in various world regions such as Iraq, Syria, Lybia and Nigeria.  In this context, the figure of George of Lydda shines more than ever as a true beam of witness to Our Lord.
