Fr. Joshua Alexander Sequeira, EP

The great passion of Fr. Joshua Sequeira E.P. – during his missionary work in Brazil, Mozambique and Colombia, as in his theology classes to the candidates to priesthood – has always been the desire to communicate the joy of God’s love that he witnessed when in contact with his founder, Mons. João Scognamiglio Clá Dias E.P.


A native of Mumbai (India), Fr. Joshua is a doctor in Theology by the Pontificia Università San Tommaso d’Aquino (Angelicum-Rome), and currently lectures at the Instituto Teológico São Tomás de Aquino, besides coordinating different publications of the Heralds in English, and an exercising an intense pastoral activity in the Parish of Our Lady of Graces (Caieiras, Brazil).


Fr. Joshua Alexander Sequeira E.P. was born in Mumbai, India. While pursuing his graduate studies in Physics, he met the Heralds of the Gospel and immediately started to participate in their evangelising work.

Finally, after finishing his philosophical and theological studies with the Heralds in São Paulo, Brazil, he was ordained a deacon by His Eminence Cardinal Bernard Francis Law in the Papal Basilica of St. Mary Major (Rome). And, in 2008, by the hands of His Eminence Cardinal Odilo Pedro Scherer, he was ordained to the priesthood at the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary (Caieiras, Brazil).

Over the years, he has accumulated abundant pastoral experience in Brazil, Mozambique, Paraguay, Colombia, Canada and South Africa. His particular interest is the humanitarian, cultural and religious formation of the youth and young adults, especially the less privileged.

Other functions exercised within the Heralds include the elaboration of the prestigious catholic magazine “Heralds of the Gospel”, edited in four languages (English, Portuguese, Spanish and Italian) in almost a million copies.

Fr. Joshua holds a master’s degree in Theology from the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana (UPB – Medellin, Colombia), and received his doctorate in Theology from the Pontificia Università San Tommaso d’Aquino (Angelicum, Rome). He also holds a specialization in Humanities by the Pontificia Universidad Madre y Maestra (Dominican Republic).

A capitular member of the Clerical Society of Apostolic Life Virgo Flos Carmeli, Fr. Joshua is the Coordinator of Studies at the Instituto Teológico São Tomás de Aquino (ITTA), where he lectures dogmatic theology. He is also the director of the peer-reviewed academic journal Lumen Veritatis, and coordinates the English translations of important works of the founder of the Heralds, Msgr. João Scognamiglio Clá Dias E.P., like the seven-volume collection “New Insights on the Gospels” and the three-volume collection “Mary Most Holy: The Paradise of God Revealed to Men”.

Do you really know who Mary is? Unfortunately, most Catholics do not…. This is because of a superficial understanding of the Mother of God since we are used to seeing her from “beneath” or, at best, from a “horizontal plane”.


Just as a city is better known when looked upon from the heights of a tower or some other natural vantage point, Our Lady herself is best observed from the highest possible “observatory”: her relations with each of the 3 Persons of the Holy Trinity! And this is what Fr. Joshua Sequeira E.P. strives for in this course.


The course, Mary: Sanctuary of the Most Blessed Trinity, is especially recommended to those who have already made their Consecration to Our Lady since it gives them more profound insights into the understanding of Our Blessed Mother.
