Pilates of the Mediterranean

Details

The book is an analysis of contemporary society with particular emphasis on Maltese society. The book presents a collection of 73 short essays and proposes a vision for local politics based on the concept of Malta as our common home. It discusses the rise of cynicism, post-truth politics and, most of all, the tsunami of corruption under which public administration is floundering. Fr Borg expounds on the politically and socially explosive potential of the Christian concept of God and of the most important celebrations in Christianity, mainly Christmas, Lent and Easter. For him the Church is an outward-looking and all-inclusive community that should be compared more to a rainbow than a club. His love for the Church is shown in many commentaries but, at the same time, he does not shy away from criticizing the institution where he feels such criticism is due.
