Logo & Theme

The visit’s logo features hands uplifted towards the Cross as they emerge from a boat battling the waves. The hands are receiving the good news of Christ delivered by St Paul to the Maltese islands and they represent the welcome that the Maltese extend to Christ in their neighbour, as well as the help that they give to those in difficulty. The boat reminds us of the dramatic narrative of the Apostle Paul’s shipwreck on the island of Malta (see Acts 27:27-44) and the welcome that he and all those with him received from the Maltese. The motto for the Apostolic Journey to Malta is “They showed us unusual kindness” (Acts 28:2).The visit’s logo chosen by the bishops is designed by Matthew Urpani, a young doctor and graphic designer. This logo can only be used with the authorisation of the Archbishop’s curia.
