Abstract: On Thursday, January 16, 1941, at around 1.50pm, the Maltese islands came under heavy attack for the first time from the mighty German air power. The attack on HMS Illustrious was on. The sacristy and the Chapter Hall of St Lawrence Church in Vittoriosa collapsed, but the titular statue of St Lawrence got preserved. The feast of 1941 was then celebrated in two different places, in Vittoriosa and in Mdina, where the titular statue was being kept. On Sunday, July 30, 1944, the statue was put back in St Lawrence Church.
