Book about Pope’s visit
Posted on June 2nd, 2010
The book Benedict XVI in Malta, celebrating the visit to Malta of Pope Benedict XVI, has just been published. It is the last element in the trio of official mementos of the visit, commissioned by the Church in Malta; the other two are the coins (solid silver and silver-plated) and the DVD (available in a longer and shorter version).
The 178-page publication is a photographic masterpiece and includes all speeches delivered by the Pope and by other speakers. It also carries comments and analysis, personal reflections and poems. The book was edited by Mr. Charles Magro.
The photographs were chosen from the extensive portfolio of the Department of Information and are striking for their affinity to the text and the truthful representation of the joy with which the Maltese welcomed the Pope.
All mementos are available from the Archbishop’s Curia in Floriana during office hours. The book is also available at the Bishop’s Curia in Victoria, Gozo, and from leading bookshops.
