On this page, one can find an updated schedule of Holy Masses in Latin (both forms of the Roman Rite) that are regularly held in the Archdiocese of Malta.
The Holy Mass is the central act of Catholic worship. As such, the liturgical actions, gestures, and prayers must reflect the true Catholic Faith. In all its details, Holy Mass reflects what Catholics believe, and vice versa: What Catholics believe is reflected in the Holy Mass.
A common Catholic adage is that the law of prayer is the law of belief: Lex orandi, lex credendi.

|The late Bishop Joe Grech of Sandhurst|
Out of the more than 360 Cardinals and Bishops who have said the Tridentine Mass since Summorum Pontificum (between 2007 and 2014) there were, at least, 2 Maltese Bishops. The late Bishop Joe Grech in Australia and Bishop Francis George Adeodatus Micallef, O.C.D., Vicar Apostolic Emeritus of Kuwait, in Malta. The late Mgr Annetto Depasquale assisted at a Tridentine Mass in Malta too.
Will the new Archbishop of Malta, Charles J. Scicluna be the third one?
A list of Cardinals and Bishops who have officiated or attended liturgies in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, after the entry into force of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, follows (some of them might have changed their Sees since celebrating or assisting at Tridentine Masses):
