He had his novitiate in Verona in 1928. He was ordained in Verona and two years after that he left for Brazil where he spent himself generously as a missionary for 61 years, without tiring, in the states of S. Paolo and Bahia and Goiás.
A missionary with a heart as great as the world, he exercised his priestly ministry with dedication and spirit of abandonment. He possessed a zealous dynamism that made him move about with a grit that feared nothing, for the cause of the gospel.
In Luziânia he was an indefatigable apostle for 37 years, getting involved with everybody (children, youth, elderly), and a penetrating evangelizer who tried to revitalize the faith. He was a teacher in the style of “gratis omnino”, who loved to proclaim the Word of God. He was a missionary, despoiled of himself, who had left behind everything in his homeland, in order to dedicate himself body and soul to the Brazilian people.
