|My Ordination Holy Card from June 19, 1977|
I celebrate today with my classmates 39 years of priesthood, as I recollect the years of ministry I offered to the people in Malta, New York and Oregon. I have learnt from every assignment, I received much more than I gave to others, and I look back with gratitude and serenity all the lives I touched, those I tried to help and those who have benefitted from my life, which I offered as a service to the Lord and to my people. I recommit my dedication and availability to those who may need my help. I am grateful that through the miracle of e-mail, I can be reached within a few seconds, and through this blog, I keep in touch with those who have followed my blog since early 2012, as they check for some daily inspiration and food for thought.
Along with my classmates, I will spend some time in prayer on June 21 and 22, and together we will be celebrating Mass on Wednesday June 22 at Dar il-Providenza chapel. This is probably one of the few occasions where we will all be together.
