The Church Ceiling in Mosta

The repaired dome in the church in Mosta

During World War II, a bomb fell through the dome of this church but did not explode. The Maltese people thought it was a miracle and neutralized the bomb and now have it on display.  If you look carefully, you will see where the bomb had fallen through and where the  dome was repaired. If you divide the decorated dome into quadrants, you can see the ‘not so perfect’ repair job in the upper left quadrant.  I have a feeling that it wasn’t repaired perfectly so that all who look up can see this evidence of this miracle.

This blog enhances my book Return to Malta by visiting most of the places mentioned in the book with color photos. The book is available through Amazon and other book stores.
