Report on the Third Anniversary of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum

Malta (in the public part) was mentioned twice, both are positive for us if we build up on them:

"There has been some small growth in England and Wales, in France, in Ireland, Malta, Poland, and Spain, due, in most part, to energetic lay people who will not be deterred." (p.10 my emphasis)

"In Malta the outlook is very positive. It is particularly encouraging that many lay persons are very young and therefore the future of the Extraordinary Form of the Mass in Malta looks bright, notwithstanding the lack of cooperation by the local church hierarchy." (p. 14 my emphasis)
