Daniel Pajuelo Vázquez , (born: July 6, 1977), better known online as smdani, is a Catholic priest who belongs to the Marianist congregation. The mission of his YouTube hannel is to build bridges between people with different beliefs, ideologies and ways of seeing the world. He studied computer engineering and theology. He currently works in a school in Madrid as a teacher and campus ministry coordinator.
smdani. follows the philosophy that Pope Francis calls "Culture of Encounter". This philosophy sees in diversity a necessary wealth and not a threat. The "truth" is a polyhedron with many faces, so it can be seen from different perspectives and all, although different, are true and enrich the overall vision. This is why it is so necessary to meet, dialogue and welcome each one from their own identity, without asking them to renounce it.
This hopeful vision of the world is also based on the belief that a sincere search for truth, and concern for the most excluded, will lead us to build a fairer and more fraternal world.
