He began his preaching work on December 20, 1942. He was the priest at San Francisco Catholic church, the promoter of the "Padre Pio" foundation and the pilgrimages to the Del Valle Virgin, in Pehuajó.
When he was 82 years old, two important events took place. On the one hand, his book called Los Versos del Cura Gaucho (The Gaucho Priest’s Verses ) was published in an attempt to rescue his literary work, and on the other hand, he was named Distinguished Citizen of Gualeguaychú.
The gaucho priest died in Gualeguaychú at the age of 90 on July 30, 2008.
