The most wonderful contacts in life occur when the eyes meet, when the hearts open up and when we live experiences together. 

The most wonderful contacts in life occur when there is intimacy, genuine feelings, transparency and real comfort. 

The most wonderful contacts in life occur when our inner self is touched with blessings and our imagination continues to roam 


On Wednesday 8 February 2017 at 5.30pm a Prayer Vigil was held at St Augustine Priory in Gozo. Some passages of Fra Grazzja Gauci OSA’s life were read out, and afterwards a painting showing Fra Grazzja was blessed, followed by a moment of adoration. The painting was painted by Manuel Farrugia. On the same day Fra Grazzja’s biography was published – a work done by Eman Bonnici. Holy paintings were distributed with a prayer written by the Bishop of Gozo Mons. Mario Grech.

This moment of prayer was held in coordination with the Archdiocese and other Christian churches.
