He was one of those curious Yankees who, on the basis of their particular interpretation of a verse or two of the Bible, found and propagate Christian sects. Whenever he had enough novices to form a group, he put them up in huts that sprang up around the farmhouse or between those old unkempt and uncared for trees.
Preparations for group initiation — largely comprising psalm—singing — lasted a week and, what with the psalms and the huts, the old farm presented the strange sight of an open—air monastery crossed with a sort of military encampment. They had no reluctance in going, because our common folk like to confabulate all sorts of religions and creeds, and to avail themselves of this one or that one as they feel the need.

But heaven help you if you tell our common folk not to have their child baptised by a Catholic priest! The response will be furious: And she was shorter than him, but taller than her.

He loved telling tales of the old country, interspersed with piquant Portuguese sayings.
It was not until after supper that the singing began. Joaquim agreed and, on the day of the birthday party, the famous balladeer duly appeared. He was white and freckled, unremarkable in both face and body. In fact he was dressed with perfectly suburban sobriety; the work of a fourth-grade tailor. The only hint of the bohemian modinha singer about him was that his hair was meticulously parted down the middle. In particular, all the local girls of all those different skin colours that poverty somehow melds and harmonises thought the world of him.

She learned from her parents to love God and neighbor, and how to be loving and charitable toward the needy. At a very early age she lost her mother and before she lost her father, she and her younger sister were sent to the royal boarding school started for orphan children of the nobility.
In the boarding school she deepened her relationship with Christ, helped by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. Their example made her think about her own vocation. Her younger sister joined a cloistered congregation and soon after she too decided to follow Jesus and serve the needy just as her parents and teachers did.
Sister Musela: She came from a noble family. After the Sisters of Charity were expelled from Portugal, she went to live with the Marquises of Valada, good family friends of theirs. But her young heart was not attracted toward the luxury of life and abundance of entertainment.
