Thirty years of episcopal life that spanned from World War II to the present day, always at the service of the Church, and a perennial desire to learn from every moment.

Known as “Bishop Alegre na Esperança”, Dom Dino, who is co-founder of Fazenda da Esperança and a member of the Focolare movement, highlights moments of his formation, highlighting his family, his friendships, the Church and the humanity present in the countless people he met. throughout his life and ministry.

The book, divided into 7 chapters and 224 pages, shows the prelate's vibrancy, even in the face of the challenges of the times he lived.

"It is edifying to perceive, throughout his narrative, a constant positive attitude towards events, even the most dramatic ones, and towards the most different people, the result not of a neutral stance, but of a dialectic that inspires his entire life and allows him to be free and authentic: the dialectic of unity”, described in the introduction of the book, Bishop Francisco Biasin, Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Barra do Piraí - Volta Redonda.

Faced with so many life stories, Dom Dino still provokes the reader to always rethink his life trajectory, since the desire to understand the changes in the world is one of his most striking characteristics. “Throughout my life did I look for the star or did I look for illusions? And today, where is my gaze turned? Remembering some moments in my history, I'm better understanding the meaning of my life”, she narrates.


The publication promises to be an invitation to the reader to reflect on their own life trajectory, and an inspiration to face the challenges and insecurities of today.

As the author himself invites, “Living the Gospel, trusting in God, allowing God to be God, this is the solution to our individual and social problems! Whoever knows how to value the gifts of intelligence and freedom received from the Creator advances. Whoever lets himself be guided by the light of God advances!”.
