Dr. Bezerra de Menezes

Adolfo was born in Jaguaretama, Ceara State in Brazil on 29th August 1831.

He was a professor, doctor, Military Officer, politician businessman and writer.

Despite being a wealthy man, his father jeopardized his fortune by helping others.

He left honour and steady character as inheritance.

Adolfo Bezerra de Menezes was initially a Catholic and converted to Spiritism after reading Allan Kardec, Spirit Book

Dr. Menezes following statement represents his professional attitude:

-A doctor does not have the right to finish his meal nor to inquire if a place is near or far when an afflicted person knocks at his door. A doctor who does not offer assistance because of visits, excessive tiredness because of the lateness of the hour, bad road or weather, distance, who asks for a car to someone who cannot pay for the prescription or tells someone who cries at his door to seek another, is not a doctor but a businessman of medicine.

Dr. Bezerra de Menezes was known as the -doctor for the poor- because of his dedication and charitable spirit.

He was the president of the Brazilian Spiritist Federation for several years and earned the title of -Brazilian Kardec- for his good deeds. He died on 11th April 1900.

Plenty of peace :)
