Ven. John of Saint-Samson Celebrated in Malta

The 450th anniversary of Ven. John of Saint-Samson’s birth was celebrated at the Mdina Carmelite Priory, the seat of the Carmelite Institute Malta, with a series of events.

On December 23, Fr. Charlò Camilleri preached the Christmas retreat to the Augustinian Sister Servants of Jesus and Mary on the meditation by John of Saint Samson entitled “Of the Ineffable Incarnation of God made Man.” The accompanying text for personal reflection and communal prayer for the day was John’s Song of the Most Deep Love of God.

On December 28, a talk on Aspirative Prayer according to John of St. Samson was delivered to the group participating in the monthly Christian Meditation Class in the Carmelite Tradition.

On January 5, the Mdina Carmelite Third Order Secular Fraternity, during the monthly fraternity meeting, reflected on John’s mystical doctrine of union with God.

The Carmelite Church in Mdina also owns a painting of Ven. John of Saint Samson. Holy cards with a short biography on Ven. John are also made available in various languages, and are particularly appreciated by the French vistors to our Church.

To commemorate the 450th anniversary and make the spirituality of John of Saint-Samson more widely known, a variety of newspaper articles were published locally by Fr. Herman Duncarn, O. Carm.
