(Reuters) – President Jair Bolsonaro received applause and also contrary shouts from the people when he arrived for Mass at the sanctuary in the city of Aparecida, in São Paulo, this Tuesday, the same day that, just before, Archbishop Orlando Brandes defended a homeland without weapons.
The president arrived at the site in the early afternoon, attended the mass and gave a reading during the religious ceremony on the Day of Our Lady Aparecida, patron saint of Brazil.
There were those who shouted, outside the Basilica, “outside, Bolsonaro”, and it was also possible to hear “myth”, as allies often refer to the president.
In a sermon before the mass at which Bolsonaro was present, the Archbishop of Aparecida, Dom Orlando Brandes defended the construction of a homeland without weapons, hatred or false news.
“Because today is Children’s Day. Let’s embrace our poor and we also embrace our authorities so that, together, we can build a Brazil ‘Beloved Homeland’. And to be a beloved homeland, it cannot be an armed homeland”, said the archbishop, without making any direct reference to the president. The country also celebrates Children’s Day on this date.
“To be a beloved homeland, be a homeland without hate. To be a beloved homeland, a homeland, a Republic without lies and fake news. Beloved homeland without corruption. And a homeland loved with brotherhood. ‘fratelli tutti’, all brothers, building the large Brazilian family”, defended Brandes.
“Pátria Amada Brasil” is the official slogan of the administration of Jair Bolsonaro, who has had, as one of his banners since the campaign for the Presidency of the Republic, the flexibility to access and carry weapons.
