St. George Preca
George Preca (in Maltese: ?or? Preca) (12 February 1880 - 26 July 1962) was a Maltese Roman Catholic priest who founded the Society of Christian Doctrine,[a] a society of lay catechists. In Malta, he is affectionately known as "Dun ?or?" and is popularly referred to as the "Second Apostle of Malta", after Saint Paul of Tarsus. The writer Joseph Carmel Chetcuti has claimed that George Preca was a repressed homosexual, who nevertheless led a chaste life. He was canonized on 3 June 2007 by Pope Benedict XVI.
