Feast-of-immaculate-conception 0140Today we went to the feast of the immaculate conception in Bormla. The feast of the immaculate conception is the feast for the blessed Virgin Mary. It is a dogma of the Roman Catholic Church. It was kept for the orifinal sin from her moment of conception and it was filled with the sanctifying grace normally conferred during baptism. It is one of the four dogmas in Roman Catholic Mariology. When we arrived in Bormla it was very full and full with food stalls with sausages, candy floss and donuts. Bormla is a very small city but this time a lot of people were there. It was very nice to see how all people come together for a feast like this. They had a little orchestra which walked through the city and played music. After we saw the orchestra we went to the church of Bormla, the Cospicua parish church. Cospicua became a parish in 1586 and the parish church, dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, was elevated to the dignity of a collegiate church in 1822. The image of the Blessed Virgin above the high altar was crowned by Cardinal Ferrata in 1905 and, fifty years later, Cardinal Tedeschini adorned it with a halo of twelve stars. Feast-of-immaculate-conception 0151The parish population is 5,657 and the families are 1,600. After we visited the church we went to the firework near there. It was really nice to see with all the nice colours. All people went there to see it. During we watched the firework it started raining, but it was for no one a problem. It was a really nice evening for all of us.
