Deus e Fiel

God and Faithful.  Another beautiful work of art from one of the Brazilian women we meet with in a São Paulo prison.  Although she is living in very difficult circumstances, Glaucia, has tremendous faith in God and the gospel.

It was especially appropriate that she gave me this drawing this weekend because Sunday’s first reading was from Genesis 9 describing how God established His covenant with us and sent a rainbow as a sign of that covenant.

In our reflection, after we read the liturgy, we were reminded that the faith that these women demonstrate in prison is a sign for us too.  A sign that God’s presence is everywhere and his covenant is still with us today.

I even learned the Portuguese word for rainbow during this reflection…of course I still can’t pronounce it properly yet.  Arco Iris!

Please pray for these women who continue to show and practice their deep faith in the words of the gospel and the hope for a better life.
