      Ia lahir di desa kecil Lewouran di Flores Timur Daratan. Sebagai anak desa Lewouran, ia mengidolakan Pater Cor Smith, seorang misionaris SVD asal Eropa yang berkarya di Lewouran ketika itu. Iapun bercita-cita ingin menjadi seperti Pater Cor Smith, membawa Sang Sabda ke seluruh dunia, tempat di mana ia diutus. Pater Cor Smith ialah misionaris SVD asal Eropa yang serba bisa. Dia menjadi seperti dokter, guru, pastor, dan bapa bagi umat Lewouran. Sosoknya diam-diam dielukan oleh si kecil Markus Solo. Selepas SMP, Markus bertekad melanjutkan ke Seminari Hokeng. Ayahnya Nikolaus Kwuta dan ibu Getrudis mendukung panggilan imamat sang anak. Selain Pater Chor, Markus tertarik mauk Seminari karena ceritera kakaknya Yoseph Bukubala, SVD yang telah lebih dahulu masuk Seminari dan kini bertugas sebagai imam di paroki St. Paulus Juanda, Sidoarjo. Markus terlahir sebagai anak desa dari keluarga petani.

     Ayahnya ialah Nikolaus Kwuta, seorang petani dan nelayan desa yang cekatan. Mereka hidup sebagaimana warga desa Lewouran lainnya. Sejak kecil Markus bertumbuh dalam kasih sayang keluarga. Ia seorang anak yang taat, religius dan sopan santun. Situasi rohani keluarga telah menuntun Markus Solo Kwuta untuk memilih menjadi imam.

     Setelah mengikrarkan kaul pertamanya dalam SVD di Ledalero, Frater Markus terpilih bersama beberapa temannya untuk melanjutkan pendidikan menjadi imam SVD dalam komunitas internasional SVD di Winna, Austria. Program pendidikan para Frater SVD internasional ialah program pendidikan bagi pendidikan calon imam SVD sejagat. Para fater SVD peserta program ini dipilih dari berbagai negara, tentu dengan mempertimbangkan kemampuan akademik, bakat, panggilan dan kemapanan budaya. Dia lulus pendidikan imam SVD di Winna, Austria lalu mengikrarkan kaul kekal dan ditahbiskan imam SVD di Winna, Austria.

     Selanjutnya dia bekerja selama 2 tahun sebagai Pastor Pembantu di Salzburg, Austria. Setelah itu dia melanjutkan pendidikan di Universitas Insburg, Austria dan mengambil program Islamologi. Ia lulus program Doktoral di Universitas Insburg pada tahun 2002 dengan predikat: summa cum laude. Setelah itu dia melanjutkan program Islamologi di Kairo, Mesir hingga mencapai gelar Licensiat. Ia fasih berbahasa Arab, Jerman, Inggris dan Italia. Setelah tamat dengan gelar Lisensiat Islamologi di Kairo-Mesir, Pater Markus Solo Kwuta kembali ke Austria. Antara tahun 2006-2007, dia diangkat sebagai rektor di Institut Afro-Asia di Winna, Austria (Afro-Asiatiches Institut, AAI). Awal tahun 2007, Pater Dr Markus Solo Kwuta, SVD dipanggil melalui Telephone Selulernya oleh Staf Vatikan untuk menjabat sebagai salah seorang Staff Dewan Kepausan Vatikan.

     Pater Markus melukiskan situasi bathinnya ketika menerima panggilan Telephon dari Vatikan untuk menjadi salah satu pejabat di Vatikan kepada wartawan Jawa Pos Doan Windiandono yang mewawancarainya di Vatikan, “Seperti kilat di hari cerah. Kaki saya seperti melayang-layang. Seperti hampa. Tetapi beberapa saat kemudian, hati saya langsung berdebar-debar”. Ia menerima dengan satu mata yang lain menangis (karena terharu) dan mata yang lain tertawa (karena gembira). Sejak bulan Juli 2007, P. Dr Markus Solo Kwuta, SVD menjabat sebagai Staff Penasihat Sri Paus pada Dewan Penasihat Sri Paus untuk Dialog Antar Umat Beragama (Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialoque/ PCID). Pater Markus berada di Desk  Departemen Dialog Umat Katolik dan Muslim di Asia dan Pasifik.

     Hampir tujuh tahun sudah, P Dr Markus Solo Kwuta, SVD menjadi pejabat di Vatikan. Ia merupakan ‘orang dalam’ Vatikan yang sangat penting. Isu dialog antara umat beragama harus dia pantau dan dia tangani dengan penuh tanggung jawab. Ia telah menjadi pastor pertama Indonesia yang menjadi pejabat penting di Lembaga Tinggi Vatikan. Dia telah menjadi pejabat Vatikan, namun kepribadiannya tetap Indonesia. Ia tetap mencintai budayanya, budaya Lamoholot, budaya Indonesia.

     Website pribadinya di www.Trioimail.wordpress.com dipenuhi dengan lagu-lagu ciptaannya yang merdu dan gembira. Pater Markus kini selain penasihat Sri Paus, dia merupakan “seorang artis gereja Kristus universal” yang suci. Dia menjadi seperti “bintang Vatikan” melalui lagu-lagu ciptaannya yang dinyanyikannya sendiri, dengan melodi musik yang diciptakannya di sela-sela kesibukannya sebagai penasihat Sri Paus di Vatikan. Kehadiran dan sosoknya sangat dihormati dan dikagumi. Ia pembawa damai dan kegembiraan Kristus bagi umat manusia. Ia berdendang melalui tembang-tembang yang disukainya: Bawalah aku ke Sion, Nimmt die Sonne, Tapin Dai Lamaholot, Lewouran Tanah Pusaka, Lera Lali-Sunset-Dolo-Dolo, Selen Ro, dll. Tampaknya dia menjadi putera Indonesia sejati dan juga putera St. Arnoldus Yansen sejati.
