Soon afterwards, he was nominated Apostolic Protonatario and General Secretary of the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro, for His Eminence. Cardinal Sebastião Leme da Silveira Cintra who succeeded His Eminence Cardinal Joaquim Arcoverde de Albuquerque Cavalcanti, executing this function until May 24, 1923, when his was nominated as Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro. He was later consecrated sacred Diocesan Bishop of Botucatu in 1924 by his friend Most Reverend Dom. Sebastião Leme da Silveira Card.  Cintra , Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro. 

He was Bishop Emeritus of Botucatu and renamed in 1936 by Pope Pius XI as Titular Bishop of Maura as a form of punishment and acceptance of his resignation from the Roman Catholic Church.

Since the death of His Excellency Bishop Lacio in 1923, Botucatu remained a vacant diocese. For his work, for his dynamism and virtues, in the fulfilment of his duty in the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro. 

His Holiness. Pope Pius XI (Most Reverend Ambrogio Cardinal Damiano Achille Ratti) nominated Monsignor Carlos Duarte Costa as the Diocesan Bishop of Botucatu on July 04, 1924. 

Monsignor Duarte Costa’s Episcopal consecration took place at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro, on December 8, 1924.

Even after Bishop Duarte Costa forced resignation his principal consecrator and friend Cardinal Sebastiao Cintra never abandoned him, he remained at his side until Cardinal Cntra died in 1942..

Cardinal Cintra personally gave Bishop Duarte Costa protection and a decree permitting him to say Mass and to have a chapel were he often attended too and with Bishop Carlos Duarte Costa both celebrated Mass together.

Cardinal Cintra was Archbishop of São Sebastião do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Cardinal-Priest of Santi Bonifacio ed Alessio.


Their apostolic succession is an unbroken line of bishops to bishop all the way through from 33 AD. An ancient pure apostolic succession today. One of the most best apostolic lines untainted. It is one of the most researched apostolic lines verified by theologians and canon lawyers who have all given testimony to this but more so to that of the apostolic line of Archbishop James Atkinson-Wake.

Forced resignation as Bishop of Botucato.

The Secretary of the Diocese of Botucatu to obtain the resignation of His Excellency, Most Reverend Dom. Carlos Duarte Costa as Diocesan Bishop of Botucatu. This sneaky act by the secretary in the daily documents and reports that Most Reverend Dom. Carlos Duarte Costa always had to sign placed the resignation letter within a series of documents which His Excellency, Most Reverend Dom. Carlos Duarte Costa signed as a result of the deception. The Diocesan secretary of Botucatu informed the Holy See of Rome that then His Excellency, Most Reverend Dom. Carlos Duarte Costa had signed the document mistakenly without reading it. This happened in the beginning of 1937.

The Holy See of Rome renounced claims that Most Reverend Dom. Carlos Duarte Costa letter of resignation was a forgery based on the verbal evidence of the Secretary of the Diocese. 

After the acceptance of his resignation His Excellency, Most Reverend Dom. Carlos Duarte Costa was appointed Titular Bishop of Maura, an extinct diocese of Africa. He was permitted to have his full sacramental privileges by His Eminence, Most Reverend Cardinal Sebastião Leme da Silveira Cintra, until his eminence passed away in 1942.
