Our most beloved Holy Father thank you for your kind self-effacing yes on April the 19 five years ago. Thank you for your loving-care, and for your encouraging teaching and supportive words, and for your all pastoral visits including that to Warsaw in May 2006, and for your warm greetings in our native languages. There is a long list of that for which we should give thanks to Your Holiness. Happy anniversary and many happy returns.

Dear Pope, you have showed in Mlata the power of God and you set out the example and showed how strong you are in front of all those attacks! One person who has been abused by the clergy has made it public that after 12 years away from church he feels full of spirit and will return to his catholic faith! Miracles do happen in Malta too! Thanks to our faith! Thanks St Paul! Thank you Lord for using all the resources we have available to show us your way!
