Feast of St Joseph


Returned to Rabat this evening to join my friend Antonio on the occasion of the feast of St Joseph. We watched the statue of the saint be carried out of the church to the sound of shouts from an enthusiastic bunch and the deafening fireworks. We then fought our way through the crowd and into the church where Grandmaster Isle Adam insisted his heart be buried. It is indeed a beautiful church, even more splendid on this occasion when all the best bits are shown off to the faithful (and to infidels such as I).
