It is certainly not the first time that our diocese is visited by an Apostolic Nuncio. Practically every one of them has blessed us with his presence. What made Archbishop Peter Wells’ visit “historic” is that he remained with us for nearly one week. It was a pastoral visit.
It was last January when he told me he would like to be with us for some time and have a better picture of our presence, service and life.
Being “Ascension day” a public holiday in the Kingdom of Swaziland, we suggested asking him to come around that time. He immediately agreed.We planned a very intense time:
We are deeply grateful not only for this time among us but also for the way he related with the people in the different places and his promise to be back again to continue visting other areas of the diocese.
