Great holmertz 2020-01-15 2:40

Hello Jorge,
It's an interesting snap-shot from the street. I believe Pentecostalism has captured the minds of millions of Brazilians in recent decades, so the Catholic church will have a hard job to retrieve the lost souls. To my eyes this priest looks like he is taking part in a film. Are you sure he's not wearing a false beard? :-)
Best regards,
Gert

no, the beard is created by his body, not a fake one. at this moment he decided to let it not so long. there are many theories about his beard here, for some people it was a religious promise, but I guess it is a way to mark him as a religious man and put women a step far from him, he is a handsome man and you know that things are more dangerous when they are prohibited.. but this beard can be another thing too.
in fact he is doing a good job in terms of faith, attracting many people to hear him. it is a hard time for faith because divorces, sons and sex out of the marriage, homosexuality in evidence, internet, cellphones, etc.. but he is dealing well with everything despite the risks..

take care

jorge
