Apostolic Visit to Malta by H.H Pope Francis


​Pope Francis takes the catamaran boat to Gozo, where he will visit the Ta' Pinu Sanctuary.​​

​Pope Francis is greeted by Gozo Bishop Anton Teuma at the Ta' Pinu Sanctuary in Għarb, Gozo. 

Inside the sanctuary, Pope Francis prays in the chapel and places a golden rose at the foot of the painting of Our Lady of Ta' Pinu. 

Both Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI gave golden roses to the miraculous painting during their visits to Malta, in 1990 and 2010 respectively. ​

​Pope Francis delivers his homily during a prayer meeting with the sick and the elderly.

Pope Francis leaves Gozo for Malta on the ferry, and is then transferred to the Apostolic Nunciature in Tal-Virtù, Rabat, which will be his residence during his stay in Malta.​
