Yesterday Pope Francis passed by the street I live. He was inside a card and I just could see his hand waving through his car window. I got so glad that I was surprised with myself . It was only a few seconds but that was enough for me!
I’m not that religious, but I consider myself a person of faith.
The Pope’s visit to Rio is really touching my heart. His charisma, his visit to a poor community, his relaxed approach to the pilgrims crowd, so many stunning moments yesterday.
Besides the chaotic traffic and the transports system failure, this event will teach a lot to all of us: from lessons of faith to tolerance.
There is still a lot to be done to take Rio to an Olympic City level. But after this week I feel my hope and strength renewed to claim for action by the Authorities to do what needs to be done!
