His full name was Jose Pedro de Freitas, but he was known under the pseudonym Ze Arigo. He was an uneducated Brazilian, but could diagnose different diseases, prescribed competent recipes and did complicated surgical operations. The paralyzed people started to dance, the blind people began to see clearly, and the deaf people returned to the world of sounds. For 15 years of his activities, Arigo healed a lot of patients, most of them were sentenced to death by official medicine.
He was born on October 18, 1921 in the small town of Congonhas do Campo in eastern Brazil. His parents were poor farmers. Due to poverty, Jose had to left school after only four years and started working at the mine. Later, he still saved up money for a small restaurant, but something unexpected happened. Jose was already 30 years old when his nightmares began and de Freitas began to talk while sleeping. Jose came to the medium, Senor Oliveira, who said it wasn’t a disease, but a call from heaven.
