Many people began to arrive, we were all of the Diocese of Rabat: religious men and women, priests, monks, lay people and also people from the Diocese of Tangier. Many people from Rabat: Christians and also Muslims, representatives of the king and many from different countries, the family of Cristóbal, even his father who is 93 years old. The situation was very familiar and very pleasant because we hardly saw anyone known, we looked for the known and greeted each other.

At the entrance, they gave us colored scarves that we put around our necks … each area of the Diocese had a different color. The eastern area that is ours, had yellow scarves. Father Cristóbal spoke for the first time to the Assembly and began with “bismilah, rahman, rahim” “in the name of the compassionate and merciful God” and very simple way he said beautiful things.

He began by saying that he did not like being called “his excellence”, but simply Cristóbal, Fr. Cristóbal …
– That we pray for him to respond with all his heart to this call that the Lord made him …
– That we may not think that he has come to organize many things but to welcome everyone: Christians, Muslims, emigrants, the poorest and most needy … to listen and love the people …
– My name: Cristóbal, says what I want to be: bearer of Christ …
– My vocation: is to be a small bridge where others want to build walls …- We cannot forget that We are prayerful persona in a place that prays.
– I also talk a lot about what you have heard us say so many times …: about friendship, the relationship with people … live with them their feasts, their joys …, their moments of pain … etc. And share ours with them… etc …

The motto of his episcopal shield is: “May your Kingdom come”. The Lord calls him and the whole Church to be signs and instruments at the service of the construction of the Kingdom of God … When he finished, he gave us his blessing … and after a song, the procession started.
