Mons. José Luís Azcona Hermoso, O.A.R., member of the Order of the Augustinians, bishop of the diocese Marajó (Para) from Brazil, is on a private pilgrimage in Medjugorje. This is his first coming to this place. Persons who were converted in Medjugorje inspired his pilgrimage. Mons. Azcona Hermoso visited the Shrine and the places of prayer, as well as the Presbytery, where he remained in a prolonged conversation with the Pastor and the Franciscans.
Mons. Azcona Hermoso was ordained a priest in 1963, and a bishop in 1987, when he was appointed bishop of the territorial prelature Marajó. (Interview: preparing).
