I have received news that Australia's Apostolic Nuncio, American born Archbishop Ambrose De Paoli, has died. This news has hit me hard, such a great man, such a great bishop. Unlike some people I will not blame God or stop beliving, but rather I take this as God showing me that he is the only one that will not change, My rock, My fortress I stand firm.
I had the great Pleasure of meeting the Nuncio at the annual corpus Christi procession up here in Brisbane and even had the great honor of being his MC. Let us offer up 1 pater, 1 ave and a gloria for his intention.
requiescant in pace
