OSVALDO CASELLATO (priest)
He was one of the first Brazilian to discover the institute of Saint Gaspar Bertoni. He studied philosophy and theology in Italy and was ordained priest in Campinas. He was constantly engaged in pastoral work in several communities: Campinas, Rio de Janeiro, Morrinhos. Ituiutaba, Brazilia and Uberaba. In Morrinhos (Goiás) he was entrusted with a vast area. His only means of transportation was the horse, which was eventually substituted by a motor bicycle which became the talk of the people, as it was the only one.
His character was open and without affectation. He cultivated a strong spirit of prayer with an enviable love to his religious vocation. He suffered with humility and patience the illness that struck him during the last part of his life
His missionary life in Goiàs was truly epic.
He was the first Stigmatine Brazilian to be ordained priest.
