MCAST held its 2019 Graduation Mass at St John’s Co-Cathedral on Wednesday, 27 November 2019. This mass, presided by the MCAST Chaplain, Fr Antoine Farrugia sdb and Dr Aurelio Mule' Stagno sdb, was preceded by a formal procession, which MCAST Management and Administration, Lecturers, Staff and many graduates started from St George’s Square to St John’s. A packed-full Co-Cathedral, including parents and guests, participated in the Liturgy of the Eucharist that was animated by the Goldberg Ensemble, under the direction of Maestro Michael Laus. In these following days, graduation ceremonies are taking place at MCAST’s Main Hall on the Main Campus, in Paola. The MCAST Chaplaincy Team warmly congratulates all new Graduates on reaching this milestone :-)

BE PREPARED which means you are always in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your DUTY, and as disciples of Jesus our main duty is to show love to one another. "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13,35.

Where your treasure is, there is your heart!

Pope Francis: prayer requires courage, tenacity! “When we speak of courage we always think of apostolic courage – going out to preach the Gospel, these sort of things…But there’s also (the kind of) courage (demonstrated) before the Lord. That sense of paralysis before the Lord: going courageous before the Lord to request things. It makes you laugh a bit; this is funny because Abraham speaks with the Lord in a special way, with this courage, and one doesn’t know: is this a man who prays or is this a‘phoenician deal’ because he’s bartering the price, down, down…And he’s tenacious: from fifty he’s succeeded in lowering the price down to ten. He knew that it wasn’t possible. Only that it was right…. But with that courage, with that tenacity, he went ahead!” Tenacity, said the Pope, even though it’s tiring, is really “tiresome.” But this, he added, “is the attitude of prayer.” Saint Teresa, he recalled, “speaks of prayer as negotiating with the Lord” and this “is possible only when there’s familiarity with the Lord.” It is tiring, it’s true, he repeated, but “this is prayer, this is receiving a grace from God.” The Pope stressed here the same sort of reasoning that Abraham uses in his prayer: “take up the arguments, the motivations of Jesus’ own heart.” “To convince the Lord with the Lord’s own virtues! That is beautiful! Abraham’s appeal goes to the heart of the Lord and Jesus teaches us the same: ‘the Father knows things. The Father – don’t worry – sends rain down on the just and the sinners, the sun for the just and for the sinners.’ With that argumentation, Abraham forges ahead. I will stop here: praying is negotiating with the Lord, even becoming inappropriate with the Lord. Praying is praising the Lord in the beautiful things he shares and telling him that he bestow these beautiful things on us. And (appealing to him) who is so merciful, so good, to help us!”

If you're too busy to pray, you're too busy!

"We are a society that has forgotten the experience of weeping, of “suffering with”: the globalization of indifference has taken from us the ability to weep!" - In his homily at Mass celebrated with the residents of Lampedusa and the immigrants who have sought refuge there, Pope Francis spoke out against the “globalization of indifference” that leads to tragedies like the deaths of so many migrants seeking a better life.

Go and preach peace to all!
