In his homily during Holy Mass to mark one year since Bishop Nambi died, the Apostolic Administrator of the Angolan Diocese called for continuous prayers for the repose of the late Bishop’s soul.
“Bishop José Nambi was a figure that we can't put into words. When he entered this Diocese, the first words out of his mouth were: I have come as a missionary,” Mons. Nicolau Costa Tchiwewe said during the Eucharistic celebration on the Feast of All Souls on Thursday, November 2.
He added, “We have nothing to say if we don't bend our knees before God to thank him for this successor of the apostles. For this man who was the guardian of the faith, for this man, the one who communicated Christ's purpose to us, he gave his disciples the one who defended the orthodoxy of the doctrine of Christ's Church and passed it on to us so that all of us who have been baptized might preserve it and preserve it forever.”
“When he came to the Diocese of Kuito Bié there were five Diocesan Priests, two Spiritans, one Trappist, and there were very few Redemptorists. Look at this presbytery now,” Mons. Tchiwewe said.
