The worst storm to hit Malta since 1982 produced hurricane force winds of up 133km/h, according to Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. The storm, which occurred on February 24, generated the intense sea turbulence that can be seen in the video below. One immense wave in particular rolled over the Ricasoli Breakwater Lighthouse in Valletta, Malta, which was filmed by Ben Cardona for Pineapple Media where he works. The slow-motion effect was added in post-production.
What is interesting is that February 24 was the closing day of the Vatican summit on clerical sexual abuse, which excused homosexuality rather than to address the cause of sexual-abuse in the Catholic Church. The issue of homosexual priests—the very cause of the sex-abuse scandal—was completely sidestepped at the summit.
And who was the key organizer of the summit but Archbishop Charles Scicluna of MALTA, who said on February 22 that decades of widespread homosexuality in U.S. seminaries had "nothing to do with the sexual abuse of minors," and who likewise said that he would never dare point to the category of homosexuality as having "the propensity to sin." Unfortunately, the summit he organized was all about concealing the Vatican’s collusion with homosexuality under the guise of "protecting minors."
A wave of divine justice appears to have collided with the lighthouse in Malta to punctuate the fact that the episcopal beacon of Malta has gone out! We pray this will be a wake-up call for the archbishop and the entire hierarchy as to how Almighty God feels about the infamous summit that served, not to halt, but to further the advance clerical sexual abuse by deflecting the attention from homosexual activity of bishops and priests.
This negligence was punctuated by Pope Francis’ own statement at the summit's close, when he said, "Those who perpetrate abuse, that is acts of physical, sexual or emotional violence, are primarily parents, relatives, husbands of child brides, coaches and teachers." Not a word about homosexual clergy.
The hand of divine justice apparently has refused to waivethis negligence. Hopefully, this puts the matter in the rightlight for all to behold from afar.
