There is to be no Midnight Mass in Malta tonight, due to the continuing curfew. The lack of the tradition services so much a feature of Christmas in churches across the Islands will be a sombre reminder of the war. Instead of the late night services, most churches opened their doors this afternoon to hold a special liturgy to mark the holy festival.
