    "Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not mine" Archbishop Ambrose was a visitor at Mother Teresa Church of Paldane, with his brother priest and his two sisters (nuns). When we had gone for the weekly choir practice, we saw a Mass was going on. When the Mass was over, all came out, we kissed Archbishop Ambrose's finger ring. Then he told us that he is the Archbishop of Ivory Coast. Again when I went to Infant Jesus Church, on a Thursday, 6 pm Konkani Mass, it was celebrated by Archbishop Ambrose, and at the end of the mass he released "Novena Booklet of Mother Teresa" A nice homily was also given by the Archbishop. Today, the news that he is no more! O Lord give him eternal rest and console his family members.
