Ronaldo “signs” for Catholicism and is baptized at the age of 46

Ronaldo Nazario is known around the world as one of the most successful footballers in history. For many, he is the best striker of all time.

However, the Brazilian star has long since stopped making news for his goals and dribbling. And not just because he’s no longer active, but because he left his best years on the field decades ago. Additionally, Ronaldo Nazario, during his long and controversial career, hasn’t always made headlines for his brilliance with the ball. As often happens with some Brazilian players, their nights full of parties and debauchery also gained space in the media.

Ronaldo Nazario receives baptism at 46

After a life dedicated to football and in the spotlight, Ronaldo Nazario decided to take a very important step in his spiritual life. At the age of 46, he decided to receive the sacrament of baptism. As the saying goes, it’s never too late if happiness is good. The legendary scorer of clubs like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, ​​Inter and Milan shared several images from the day of his baptism through his social networks, a celebration that he claimed with all his followers.

On the day of his baptism, Ronaldo Nazario was surrounded by his closest relatives and friends. Photos published on his social networks testify to the importance of this moment for the former Brazilian star. A beautiful proof of conviction and faith.

Ronaldo Nazario, an avowed Catholic

Ronaldo Nazario, despite the excesses that marked a good part of his life, particularly during his youth and during his splendor as a football star, expressed his convictions on several occasions. The Brazilian, even if he recognizes that he is not as practicing as he would like, does not hide feeling very close to God and the Christian faith. For example, in 2021, shortly after becoming president of Real Valladolid, the club he owns, he decided to cycle the Camino de Santiago. There he had an experience that marked him forever: “I thought a lot during the Way, but I was grateful for many things we accomplished with Valladolid.”

Now Ronaldo Nazario has one more reason to strengthen his faith. He recently announced his plans to marry his current partner, Celina Locks. The two have been together for seven years and plan to get married in the near future.

Thus, Ronaldo Nazario, the famous Brazilian striker, chose to put an end to his tumultuous past by devoting himself completely to his new spiritual life. His baptism marks a new chapter in his life, where he hopes to live his Christian faith in a deeper and more faithful way. A decision which testifies to his desire to find peace and happiness beyond the football fields.
