A delegation of 116 Italians from Monte Cassino is expected to arrive in Malta today to participate in the Benedictine Torch.

 

Benedictine Torch in Malta

The Benedictine Order has chosen Malta to hold its annual event of peace, hope and fraternity, known as the Benedictine Torch, which every year since 1964, has been the main feature of a pilgrimage beginning from the city chosen to light the torch and ending in Monte Cassino (Rome, Italy) at the Shrine of St Benedict.

A couple of years ago I used to enjoy listending to Rev. Kusala’s podcasts and through him I came to know about St Benedict.
