Apostolic Journey

Pope Benedict in Malta

Pope Benedict XVI visited the island of Malta over the weekend of 17-18 April 2010. It was the Holy Father's first visit to the island as Pope - his predecessor John Paul II made three Apostolic Journeys to Malta. It is reported that 98% of religious believers are Catholic - making Malta Europe's most Catholic country. Malta is a place of great significance to the Church in that St Paul, a patron saint of the island, was shipwrecked at the now aptly named St Paul's Bay 1,950 years ago. Tens of thousands lined the streets. One priest said: "they came out for Christ."
