The Church in Mosta has a fascinating history. It is the most beautiful building outside and inside, but the story of what happened during the war is amazing.
During an air raid 300 people were in the church, no doubt praying for their safety, then a 500kg bomb fell through the domed roof and smashed into the mosaic floor just in front of the altar!
It failed to explode and the people inside survived! The British forces on Malta defused the bomb and took it away to be destroyed.
There is a replica of the bomb on display inside the church.
A Miracle I am sure you will agree!
