To gift a Nuncio

To gift a Nuncio

As many of you know, our friend in Zambia, His Excellency Archbishop Nicola Girasoli, celebrated the fifth anniversary of his episcopal ordination the weekend of the 12 March. Maria Amesbury represented our parish community and took with her the greetings and prayers of the people of St Bernadette’s, as well as a token of our respect and good wishes. What can you give a nuncio who has almost everything? Well, we opted to give him something that was personal both to him and to us. We had a Bristol Blue plate made bearing the Archbishop’s own coat of arms…something which we hope he will both enjoy and treasure over the years to come. At least it will be a talking piece if he uses it on the dining room table in the Nunciature…and at least he will bring us into the conversation, too.

We wish him every blessing in the years to come and pray that God will continue to use him as the instrument through which eh smiles on us, his people.

Ad multos annos.
