  • Blind political faith

    In the Talking Point ‘Politics as public service’ (April 18), Desmond Zammit Marmarà brings out clearly the hurtful political contortions being endured by Labour Party supporters. While acknowledging the numerous ills and vices attributable, no...

  • Church devotion

    One cannot help noticing the difference between the administration of Holy Communion in Malta and in Poland. The Catholic Church in Poland has retained the administration of Holy Communion by the consecrated hands of an ordained priest – possibly...

  • Shambolic landscapes

    Shambolic landscapes

    I just wanted to share with readers the improvements with regard to the landscapes of Malta courtesy of the Planning Authority. The PA should be thanked for having rendered a view of the majestic fortifications left to us by those valiant Knights...

  • Fast ferry service

    The introduction of a fast ferry service between the two islands has now been in the offing for decades. In fact the first step was introduced when Gozo had its first energetic minister a couple of decades ago. Since then, very...

  • BBC Malta feature

    Maltese traditions and religious customs were embraced and eulogised on BBC Radio 4 on Easter Sunday at a time when processions with the statue of the Risen Christ were greeted by enthusiastic if somewhat excited crowds waiting for the...

  • On first-name basis

    The gospel of Tuesday in the Octave of Easter tells the story of Mary Magdalene’s meeting with the Risen Jesus “outside the tomb” (John 20:11). She recognised our Lord when he called her name: “Mary” (John 20:16). The Expositor’s Greek...

  • Rave parties

    How disgusting – the Malta Tourism Authority helped in theorganisation of two rave parties on the holiest days of the year, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. I don’t want to hear that not everyone is a practising Christian.  I know that well enough.

  • Shot in the foot

    Shot in the foot

    Through consumption of local agriculture produce, the local farming community will not be the only stakeholder to benefit but also will society at large. The farm-to-fork concept means produce travels much less until it arrives at the consumer,...

  • Article on MMR vaccine (1)

    With reference to the article ‘MMR vaccine and autism – the movie ‘they don’t want you to see’” (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 16), the Malta Association of Public Health Medicine, the Malta College of Family Doctors, the Malta Paediatrics...

  • Article on MMR vaccine (2)

    Kathryn Borg has once more overstepped a red line by misleading readers with a highly biased article which can harm public health (“MMR vaccine – the movie ‘that they don’t want you to see’”, The Sunday Times of Malta, April 16). In the article...

  • Article on MMR vaccine (3)

    I would like to express profound disappointment at the publication of the article “MMR vaccine and autism – the movie ‘they don’t want you to see’’, by Kathryn Borg. The fraudulent Wakefield article which allegedly linked autism with the MMR...

  • Article on MMR vaccine (4)

    People all over the world, especially children, are currently suffering as a result of the burden from the incorrect and falsified publication related to the MMR vaccines in the past. Let us not be responsible for bringing back diseases which were...

  • Wied il-Għomor

    Wied il-Għomor

    I remember, as a child, Wied il-Għomor was much bigger than it is now. Trees grew on both sides of the valley until the two sides were both built up. One side is known as ‘The Village’, although it was then part of Mensija, whereas the other side...

  • Destiny of Marsascala

    Considering myself to be a proud Maltese citizen, I take great pride in the way various historical buildings have been restored and their surroundings upgraded. An example of this is Vittoriosa’s Ditch (Il-Foss tal-Birgu), which I recently visited...

  • The importance of Catholic pilgrimage sites

    Despite growing secularism, Europe features several pilgrimage sites and shrines associated with manifestations of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Lourdes, Fatima, Medjugorje, Paris of the Miraculous Medal, Walsingham in England, and Knock in Ireland...

  • Brexit – every threat is an opportunity

    Brexit – every threat is an opportunity

    I read with interest the letter by Peter Apap Bologna, (‘Brexiteers were greatly misled’, The Sunday Times of Malta, April 16). Clearly, in his opinion, everyone who voted for Brexit is suffering from “post-imperial nostalgia, xenophobia and sheer...

  • Excellent care at Mater Dei

    I would like to thank all the doctors and nurses in Medical Ward 4 at Mater Dei Hospital for the constant and vigilant care they showed to our beloved Juanita Debattista during her short stay at the hospital. May the good Lord reward you for your...

  • Disappointed with Turkish Airlines

    My daughter booked with Turkish Airlines to fly to America this August after being advised of the great service and good prices they offer customers. Unfortunately, she was forced to postpone her dream vacation because she has to re-sit an exam in...

  • How not to plan a town square

    Many people are unhappy with the way Nadur square was embellished a few years ago. I heard the work cost hundreds of thousands of euros. And the result? The trees were removed and the square has become naked. The narrow street leading to the...

  • Marsascala’s priorities

    I do not know who came up with the idiotic idea of constructing a new pool in Marsascala on the quie­ter side of the village’s promenade. This area will be ruined; after all, the existing pool and the waterpolo pool are both in good condition. Who...
