During summer many people take a break from work to spend some time of rest; this is the right thing to do and it’s also necessary. Apart from those who like to travel, many are those who spend a few days by the seaside and possibly devote more time to the family. During vacation time, it is easy to drift away from parish life and, with the exception of the ‘festa’ celebrations, we tend to forget that there are other nearby churches in which mass is celebrated. For those who wish to have information regarding mass schedules of churches in their vicinity, or others who wish to spend some time in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament in one of the chapels which are located around Malta, the Curia Communications Office has launched a new version of the mobile phone application ‘Malta Mass’.

During our days of rest, let us not forget the words of Jesus “Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest” (Mt 11,28) – in our lives, true rest is found in Him.
