Pope to visit Malta

The Vatican has announced that Pope Francis will visit the islands of Malta and Gozo on May 31. The one-day trip is the first and only international journey officially on the Pope’s schedule for 2020. Malta is the site where St. Paul was shipwrecked on route to Rome in 60 A.D., and the theme of the papal trip comes from Acts 28: “They showed us unusual kindness.”
