I had the opportunity to know him years ago in her condition already Bishop and linked to administrative matters of a private of the Catholic Church of Santiago Corporation. Eastern priest Salesian, who arrived in chile from Italy for fifty years, now nearing age 69, is not only the mediator of the cause of the mapuche in the conflict of the striker and the dialogues of the nielol southerner, remembering the former parliaments of Indians, to the Government of Sebastian Pinera, in this desire of permanent historical rhetoricsearching her examples, quotes, custom and traditions, which have not been less celebrated by the population, eager for patriotism in this advance bicentennial, which is still held in this Chile so sui generis; but Monsignor Ezzati, is also the most serious applicant in the Cardinals succession, that the current prelate Francisco Javier Errazuriz Ossa will leave vacant promptly. Returning to the theme of Ezzati and his work as a mediator, knowing its trajectory and its form be, represents the more orthodox sense, the way of being of the nineteenth-century Vatican diplomacy. Nor the Pope Pio Nono, who was nuncio in Chile before being elected Pope, nor Monsignor Angelo Sodano, Lieutenant of Pope Juan Paul II for many years and also nuncio Apostolic in our country, represent a figure so anodyne as the Ricardo Ezzati.
