Members of the Neo Catechumenal Movement partially hid the infamous Luqa monument with a banner as the Pope passed through Luqa on his way to Valletta this afternoon.

The large black and white banner carried the words “Cammino Neo Catecumenale” and a colour picture of the Madonna and child.

The phallic like structure in Luqa has made it to the international news in the past days after the mayor requested its removal.

The Pope was driven right around the roundabout, with the youths trying to keep up.
