Lassana Cisse given touching tribute at St. George’s Basilica in Gozo

Oct 27 2021 Share

42-year-old immigrant and father of 3 Lassana Cisse, who was murdered in cold blood in Ħal Far two years ago, has been given a touching tribute in the form of a mural at St. George’s Basilica in Rabat, Gozo.

Lassana’s image portrays two individuals by his side with one representing society disregarding him with a phone in hand and the other representing the church offering its support.

The mural is part of the eight Opri tal-Ħniena in the Basilica, which highlight the importance of not shrugging away those in need. Father Joseph Curmi posed a question to TVM stating “What will society do now? Keep scrolling as we do on our mobiles, or decide to care?”

In every other picture of the Opri tal-Ħniena, the images illustrate a protagonist with two figures, with one representing the Church and the other representing society.

We all knew it was going to be a stormy and rainy week, but it seems as though this sudden shift towards the autumn season has brought with it quite a thunderous mid-week. Some weather portals are reporting that this may be one of the most intense storms to ever hit the Maltese islands in history, and from the looks of it and a quick glance outside the window, it sure seems to be shaping out this way. The Maltese Islands Weather Facebook page posted to social media admitting to the forecast of an intense system starting tomorrow all the way to Thursday.

The page itself is working on a detailed update which is due for release today and providing all the information one needs to navigate such a weather-based ruckus. It did however warn against succumbing to rumors and sensationalism making rounds on social media – it might be a big one, but this storm isn’t going to flip Malta on it’s head. Make sure you stay safe, especially if you need to venture out in such conditions. We’ll see what mid-week holds for us!
