My experience with Mary started right at my mother’s breast! Mary, the Immaculate Conception, has always accompanied me and has been a light on my journey since childhood, through her words "Do everything that He tells you."
Today the Virgin Mary is ever-present in my episcopal ministry. I can testify that she has never let me down, especially at the three keys moments of my life: when I had to leave my father's house to commit myself to the service of the Gospel as a diocesan priest; when I crossed the ocean to go do a mission in Spain; and still today, in my mission as Bishop of São Miguel Paulista (Brazil).
