Fra' Festing Could be Re-Elected Grand Master

We can only hope so. I borrowed this comment on the article from Fr. Lawrence Lew and share his sentiment. [A charming interview with the former Grand Master of the Order of Malta that captures his personality and genuine love for the poor:]
From the article, “I personally like doing things.” So even after 2008 he continued to volunteer at Lourdes railway station, carrying newly arrived pilgrims off the trains in their wheelchairs and on stretchers. “I remember when I said I was damn well going to go on doing that, some people very much disapproved. They said, ‘No, no, no, no – the Grand Master is much too important and grand for that.’ It’s silly.”
