VINÍCIUS MIGUEL BOTELHO DE OLIVEIRA

From a very young age, I have been fascinated by the mystery of the Mass.  I loved to “play” Mass as a child.  As I grew up, I met people who inspired me to have a closer relationship with the Lord.  As my faith was challenged during my high school years, I asked myself about the meaning of my own life.  I had to admit to myself that there is only one reason worth living: Christ.  I want to do everything possible to make Him present on this earth.
