Minħabba l-Covid-19, il-purċissjonijiet tal-Ġimgħa l-Kbira kellhom jitħassru kollha u d-dilettanti ħassewhom qalbhom maqsuma.  Din l-okkażjoni jkunu ilhom jistennewha sena sħiħa.  Xi wħud litteralment “jgħixu” għal dak il-mument meta jieħdu lasta biex jerfgħu f’xi waħda mill-vari, jew furċina, jew jinbidlu f’wieħed mill-karattri bibliċi.  Frans ħassu se jiġġennen.  Ilu sa minn tfulitu jieħu sehem fil-puċissjoni tal-Ġimgħa l-Kbira u issa ilu għal dawn l-aħħar ħamsa u għoxrin sena jinbidel f’suldat Ruman. Jiftakar żmien meta l-maltemp kien żammhom ġewwa. U issa nqala’ dan l-imgħarraq ta’ Corona virus. Imma lilu xejn ma kien qed jaqtagħlu qalbu. Huwa kien Ċenturjun qalbieni tal-Imperu Ruman.  Ebda pandemija ma kienet se ssakkru ġewwa.
