Closing of Pauline Year at Nadur Basilica of Ss. Peter and Paul, Malta

A reader from Malta recently sent in photos of the visit of Cardinal Ennio Antonelli, Papal Legate to Malta, to Gozo in order to close the Pauline Year.

The occasion took place at the St Peter and St Paul Collegiate Basilica in Nadur, as this town celebrated its titular feast.
