Hall of Honour (6): Fr Martin Borg OCD

Fr Martin Borg has a very good and clear knowledge about the life and the person of St Theresa of Avila. He is also an accomplished artist and has restored several ecclesiastical works of art around Malta.
 
Fr Borg was also involved in acquiring a new bell for the St. Theresa's Church in Cospicua.

According to Article 3 of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum:

Communities of Institutes of consecrated life and of Societies of apostolic life, of either pontifical or diocesan right, wishing to celebrate Mass in accordance with the edition of the Roman Missal promulgated in 1962, for conventual or "community" celebration in their oratories, may do so. If an individual community or an entire Institute or Society wishes to undertake such celebrations often, habitually or permanently, the decision must be taken by the Superiors Major, in accordance with the law and following their own specific decrees and statues.
Fr Martin is one of those who has implemented this Article. He regularly celebrates Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite and has also - on occasions - celebrated Mass for members of Pro Tridentina (Malta).
