6th March 2019 – The students launch the Pope’s slogan: ‘Give up gossiping for Lent’

On Ash Wednesday, a group of students at St. Margaret College Verdala Secondary School together with their teacher Martin Azzopardi sdc and school Spiritual Director Fr Carmelo Spiteri ocd launched the Pope’s slogan: ‘Give up gossiping for Lent’. Students were inspired by the message of Pope Francis whom on the 3rd March while reciting the Angelus Prayer in St. Peter’s Square in Rome, he urged all the faithful to reflect upon the line of the day’s Gospel: “Why do you notice the splinter in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own?” The Pope said: “We all know it usually is easier or more comfortable to notice and condemn the defects and sins of others rather than seeing our own with that kind of clarity,”
