Maria Cecilia      

"Our Lady was the woman who provoked Jesus’ first miracle because she was susceptible to people's needs. She was there at this big party and she knew how this could be for the family to miss the wine .. So she noticed that and she provoked a miracle, and from this example I just try to follow her sensitivity, to see what is the most needed action .. to see what people's needs are and to attend to them as much as I can."

"For me, this is a big gift from the Virgin Mary to me, because when I asked, she answered me with her sweet presence and her strong presence. So I know, I believe, she asked for me, together with Jesus, and I am here and very happy to say very, very thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks for my life."

Nathan was at World Youth Day Toronto 2002 with Pope John Paul II.

St JPII - "You are young, and the Pope is old .. But the Pope still fully identifies with your hopes and aspirations. Although I have lived through much darkness, under harsh totalitarian regimes, I have seen enough evidence to be unshakably convinced that no difficulty, no fear is so great that it can completely suffocate the hope that springs eternal in the hearts of the young. You are our hope, the young are our hope. .. Do not let that hope die! Stake your lives on it! We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father's love for us and our real capacity to become the image of his Son."

Paolo & Alessandra     


Paolo & Alessandra give their response in Portuguese. They are married & in the movement Equipes de Maria.

Paulo Henrique      

"Mary for me is the model of who we should be and who I feel I want to be. She is the first person who knew Jesus, who loved him, and she is the first person who followed him completely and who lived the life that we should be living - totally pondering every word of his, pondering every action of his, meditating on his Passion, his suffering. If I can try and do anything, any little thing, that she has done and copy her, then I feel I will be closer to being more like Christ."

Paolo Henrique gives his algo sobre Maria in English & Portuguese.


"I feel so close to Mary and now I am really happy because I am getting married on 12th December, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. And I believe that Mary brought into my life my fiance because he is a gift from God to me. So I just can say that Mary is my mother, she is always with me, I love her and I am really happy because I am Catholic and I have this precious mother in my life."

Rebeca gives her algo sobre Maria in English & Portuguese.


"For me Mary is somebody who always protects me and helps me with anything that I ask of God."



Takao gives his something about Mary in Portuguese.


"My first call to the priesthood is very connected to Mother Mary. Once I was at the Basilica of Our Lady of Aparecida, the Patroness of Brazil, when I was 17. I felt Our Lady telling me that my place was on the altar and this strong message was coming from her statue there in that basilica. The first moment, I was really surprised by that interior call ... And since then, I feel that she is always with me, she is the one who teaches me to pray and her presence in my life is very important. Always when I'm feeling like lost or lonely, I just start praying the rosary and ask her presence and feel very comforted and supported by Mother Mary."

Wagner gives his something about Maria in English & Portuguese.
