Lent 2020


The blog is tetralingual and some articles, including Letters to the Filipinos, have text in English, Portuguese, Spanish and French, to facilitate evangelization.

The Holy Spirit asked me to intensify the correspondence with the Filipinos because they will perform a distinct role in God’s Plan of Salvation for Humanity in The End Times.

I express my deepest appreciation to all my Facebook friends and readers of my blog who congratulated me on my August 5 birthday.

I have created this post to communicate with my blog readers, and this is the fourth time I use the post for the goal.

The blog has been a major success since its inception on January 11, 2013.  The blog started bilingual, English and Portuguese, and it is tetralingual including Spanish and French.

The blog dedicated to the Holy Spirit, comprises meditations on Catholicism to move Christians closer to God.  The Holy Spirit has called me to study Theology independently, to document my studies, and communicate them to the world.  


Born in the city of Horta, Azores, Portugal, on August 1954, I lived till October 1973 in the nearby parish of Castelo Branco. I graduated from the Horta lyceum as a distinct student, served as a navigation officer in the Portuguese Air Force from 1973 till 1976, and immigrated to the United States on June 1976.

I married Noémia in November 1979 and we live in Providence, Rhode Island, USA. My wife was born in the parish of Santo Amaro, island of São Jorge, Azores. We have two daughters, Alexandra, 39, and Andrea 28. Alexandra has completed a post-doctorate in Medicine by Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, and is a director in a biotechnology company; Andrea has earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of Rhode Island, North Kingston, RI, and has joined Johnson & Wales University, Providence, RI, and pursuing a Master’s Degree in Psychology at the university.

I got undergraduates degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science both by Rhode Island College, Providence, RI, and a Master in Business Administration (MBA) in Accounting by Bryant University, Smithfield, RI, and completed advanced graduate studies in Computer Information Systems at Bryant University. I held a professional certificate in Manufacturing and another in financial services.

I was an engineer for about 30 years with American Insulated Wire, Pawtucket, RI, a  wire and cable manufacturer, and took early retirement in September 2007, when the company was acquired by a competitor.
