Episcopal primate of Brazil on the street demonstrations

The Episcopal Primate of the Igreja Episcopal Anglicana do Brasil, the Most Rev. Mauricio Andrade, wrote on his Facebook page about the street demonstrations taking place throughout Brazil:

“A misericórdia e a verdade encontraram-se, a justiça e a paz se beijaram. A verdade brotará da terra, e lá dos céus olhará a justiça. A justiça irá adiante de Deus e com seus passos abrirá caminhos” Salmo 85.

Rogo a Deus que neste dias possamos como povo brasileiro a cada expressão de indignação estarmos construindo novos passos e abrindo novos caminhos para renovar a esperança e construir justiça . Amen.


In English:

“10 Love and faithfulness meet together;

righteousness and peace kiss each other.

11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,

and righteousness looks down from heaven.

12 The Lord will indeed give what is good,

and our land will yield its harvest.

13 Righteousness goes before him

and prepares the way for his steps.” (Psalm 85)

I pray to God that in these days we can, with the Brazilian people and each expression of indignation, be taking new steps and opening new roads to renew hope and create justice. Amen

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
