Mon, 10 Feb 2020 05:00:00 GMT Today's Holiday http://encyclopedia2.aromahaler.com/Feast+of+St.+Paul%27s+Shipwreck //encyclopedia2.aromahaler.com/Feast+of+St.+Paul%27s+Shipwreck#2020 This feast is a commemoration in Malta of the shipwreck of St. Paul on the island in 60 CE, an event told about in the New Testament. When storms drove the ship aground, Paul was welcomed by the "barbarous people" (meaning they were not Greco-Romans). According to legend, he got their attention when a snake bit him on the hand but did him no harm, and he then healed people of diseases. Paul is the patron saint of Malta and snakebite victims. The day is a public holiday, and is observed with family gatherings and religious ceremonies and processions.
