Titanic may very well be the best-known shipwreck in the world today (it is, after all, the year of the Titanic), but St. Paul’s shipwreck, detailed in Acts 27-28, might beat it out on the all-time most famous shipwreck list (a quite official list, of course). And while the Titanic remains a symbol of unbridled hubris, St. Paul’s shipwreck incites a party.
Every year, Malta celebrates the saint’s miracles on the island after he wrecked on the island in 60 AD. Revelers mass, there’s a grand procession, marching bands and fireworks. If you’re near or if you can pack up and go–head to Valletta for tomorrow’s festivities.
