The Fazenda, a women's center, in Guaratinguetá / SP joined last Monday (02), the day of the dead, the proposal of the National Conference of Bishops of Brazil (CNBB) to pray and plant trees in memory of the deceased.
"It is part of the manifestation of our faith to visit cemeteries, but because of the pandemic, the CNBB asked that each person who had a loved one and could not go to the cemetery, plant a tree. Thus, he would be contributing to the ecology and remember mainly from the people who died because of Covid ", explained Daniela Lima, responsible for the women's center.
Each house, where the young women and women in recovery live, received a seedling of Ipê and accompanied by the 'godmothers' and the priest planted the trees near their homes.
“We are, therefore, called to witness our hope now by facing death with gestures of love. A Christian and citizen gesture of those who bet on life in the face of death. Let us all be, Church in Brazil, in every place with this gesture of love ”, said Archbishop of Belo Horizonte (MG) and President of CNBB, Dom Walmor Oliveira de Azevedo in your invitation to Christians and Catholics of the Church in Brazil
