Applauding American Knights of Malta on Ta’ Pinu pilgrimage
|Email item||Print item||
Readers Letter – “I read The Gozo News report: “American Knights of Malta to hold a pilgrimage at Ta’ Pinu.” I am a papal Knight of a different, yet similar organization: the Equestrian Order of the Knights of The Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, plus in addition. I am also a member of The Brotherhood of Blessed Gerard, which is the relief-arm of the Order of Malta.
The pilgrimage to Our Lady of Ta’ Pinu in Gozo, was to have occurred this past Tuesday, 10 September, so I hope that everything went well and I salute my brother Knights and confreres on their dedication and devotion on this spiritual pilgrimage.I also thank Bishop of Gozo Mgr Mario Grech for celebrating the Mass. The photograph of this historic landmark in The Gozo News was very impressive and indeed I hope I can see it in-person someday.
The Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta, is the oldest of the surviving papal Chivalric Orders.
Again, my best wishes and congratulations to all involved.”
