Bishop of Gozo Mgr. Mario Grech spoke on Wednesday in his Homily on authentic Marian devotion and popular piety, at the occasion of the Feast of Our Lady of Pompeii in the Church of the Dominican Sister, Victoria.
Bishop Grech said, “our devotion to the Madonna leads us to want to accompany and offer shelter to orphans (in the broad sense of the word) of our times. They are those who feel alone – a recent study shows that 30% of our population is suffering from loneliness. These are in addition to those going through a spiritual or religious solitude.”
This modern human crisis can be addressed and overcome if we open our hearts to Christ. with Marian devotion, and if it is true, it leads to Jesus, said the Bishop.
