The Apostles, a word follow me and leave the networks, and leave the boat on the shore, and follow Christ. Only a Word and there is a radical change of life. Matthew follow me, and let taxes and follow Christ. Hence therefore always come watching encounters with Christ, a change of life there in a transformation. We can also mention that Jesus met with Pharisees, with the rich young man, with Pilate, Herod, but here there is a change why? because in your heart there is a self-sufficiency, and then the divine grace of the meeting does not act.

There are life-changing when the heart is simple, and is an open heart. But even there is another text that need your attention, which is the Pope’s inspiration to write this letter to stay with us Lord chapter 24 of San Lucas in verse 13 to 35, those two disciples who have fled Jerusalem for fear, towards Emmaus, and Christ is made present. The invitation has, not the disciples. Risen that Walker makes with them and begins to share the conversation, you are invited to stay and share bread, and they recognized him, do not remain in Jerusalem, and now again joyful communicate the big news, there is a change, a transformation, become happy and glad to say we have seen Jesus, be has appeared with us. We can mention more stories, they are sometimes long, sometimes short, they presented Jesus, presented to the person concerned, a Word, several words, several phrases. Now well, the Eucharist is a meeting and is an encounter with the mystery of Christ, is meeting with Christ will take its rituality, as we have seen in the two disciples of Emmaus rituality: greeting, conversation, Word, break bread, and turned to give testimony, there is a ritual, and ES rituality performs the transformation and the change of persons.

In the year of 1895, the Mexican Government is worried extend the planting of the vines, but this effort could not be continued by the social changes in the country. In 1904 James Concannon abandon Mexico but six years later another Californian vinifiers Perelli Minetti planto another range of strains in hundreds of acres near Torreon. By 1900 much of Mexican vineyards was destroyed by phylloxera and political problems disrupted the country during many years after the Revolution of 1910.

The result was oxidized yellowish white, red wines: it lacked or there was enough sweetness or acidity.

Chapter 4 after the second world war in 1948 was established the National Association of winemakers, who initially joined fifteen companies. Fourteen companies were incorporated in the period between 1950 and 1954. The overall situation has changed considerably from the 1970s, so the vine cultivation has increased. The introduction of varieties of grapes, vinification cellars installation by integrating advances in science enologica more modern, the improvement of the standard of living of the middle class, commercial and educational efforts of the big brands, have allowed to place on the market products of quality, giving rise in the public interest towards a new habit of wine consumption. Production already triplico between 1970 and 1980. This unprecedented growth, assumes that they are multiplied by six every ten years, i.e., practically by two every three years, the surface of cultivated vines, the capacity of the facilities of wine-making, conservation, bottling, the efforts of marketing and distribution and therefore human and financial investments.

In relation to this, Martins affirms that: Only (…) in the decade of 1960 the troops of muares had half lost the condition of main of linking between the city, the districts, the towns and the diverse cities of the Valley of the Jequitinhonha under the commercial, politician-administrative and educational influence of Diamantina.

After the pavement of the stretch between Curvelo and Diamantina in 1968, the highway becomes the main access the city, before made way Conceio of the Weeds Inside.
