"I feel good, at peace with myself," he told People en Español. "I want to enjoy my rich inner world, help those I can, give a helping hand to others."
“I've determined many times that you have to start with yourself," Mercado emphasized. "What you have inside is what you portray to the outside world. I enrich myself with meditation."
A MATTER OF FATE
"In my life I have never looked for anything," he reflected. "Everything has come to me."
ANGEL OF PEACE
"In my work, it's not the years that count, it's the wisdom," he told People en Español. "I have always said that I wasn't born and I won't die. What I am is an angel that passed through Earth, leaving behind much peace."
