I am looking for a video that was posted online years ago but can't seem to find it anymore.

The video showed a Roman Catholic procession in the streets of Malta. A group of men carried a statue of a saint on their shoulders. The procession passed in front of Our Lady of Damascus Greek Byzantine Catholic Church. The priest-- I believe it was Father George Mifsud Montanaro--stood in front of the church with censer in hand. As the procession passed in front, he began to incense the image. The men carrying the image stopped and then turned the image so that it faced the priest. It was very interesting how that turning was done. It was fascinating to watch, a wonderful example of mutual respect of devotions between the Christian East and West.

Would anyone know where this video can be found? I would like to see it again.
I thought it was posted on the New Liturgical Movement blog, but can't seem to find it there.

I saw that but I remembered the video saying it was an Orthodox priest? Maybe typing that in will help your search? I tried looking but couldn't turn it up. I remembered seeing it and being awed at how awesome it was to see, what I thought was an Orthodox priest, coming out to incense a Catholic procession. I thought to myself, THIS is what ecumenism looks like.

I finally found the video in question. It's posted on Facebook.

The procession took place in 2015 and it was Fr. George from Our Lady Of Damascus Greek-Catholic Church incensing a statue of Saint Vincent Ferrer as it's carried through the streets of Valletta, Malta on the saint's feast day.

It's an annual event in which the statue makes a brief stop before the church to be incensed.

Click this link to see the video from the 2015 procession plus videos from the 2017 and 2018 processions: https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/sanvincenzferrer

It's so beautiful to see the mutual respect being shown.
