How extra-ordinary to find next to a door a saintly plaque. And not just a few but actually quite a lot. Malta was full of them. More so in Valetta than in Mdina but this maybe implied by the name alone already. I have no clue though. Just found it interesting that this was so. In any case I want you to look at this, how exquisitely some of these plaques are. More so that sometimes there were windows dedicated to displaying saints or the Holy Family.
What astonished me as well was that Saint Joseph appears to be quite popular in Malta. I have seen a lot of “Joseph and child” and the “Holy Family”. Not more often than “Maria with child” but more often than anywhere else in the world. Why is that? Does anyone have a clue? Yours, Pollybert
