Oração da Campagna

Deus criador, Pai da familia humana, Vós formastes a Amazônia, maravilha da vida, bênção para o Brasil e para o mundo. Despertai em nós o respeito e a admiração pela obra que vossa mão entregou aos nossos cuidados. Ensinai-nos a reconhecer o valor de cada criatura que vive na terra, cruza os ares ou se move nas águas. Perdoai, Senhor, a ganância e o egoísmo destruidor; moderai nossa sede de posse e poder. Que a Amazônia, berço acolhedor de tanta vida, seja também o chão da partilha fraterna, pátria solidária de povos e culturas, casa de muitos irmãos e irmãs. Enviai-nos todos em missão! O Evangelho da vida, luz e graça para o mundo, fazendo-nos discípulos e missionários de Jesus Cristo, indique o caminho da justiça e do amor; e seja anúncio de esperança e de paz para os povos da Amazônia e de tudo o Brasil.
Amém.

Creator God, Father of the human family, You made Amazonia, marvel of life, blessing for Brazil and for the world. Awaken in us respect and admiration for the work that your hand delivered into our care. Teach us to recognize the value of each creature that lives on earth, crosses the sky or moves in the waters. Forgive, Father, the greed and self interest that destroys; moderate our thirst for control and power. May Amazonia, welcoming source of so much life, also be the ground of fraternal sharing, and a strong country of peoples and cultures, a house of many brothers and sisters. Send us all on a mission! O Evangelist of life, light and grace for the world, make us disciples and missionaries of Jesus Christ, show the path of justice and love; and be the announcement of hope and peace for the peoples of Amazonia and all of Brazil.
Amen.



Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something.

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused.

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something.

Hold your head up - Keep your head up - Movin' on
Hold your head up - Movin' on - Keep your head up - Movin' on
Hold your head up - Movin' on - Keep your head up - Movin' on
Hold your head up - Movin' on - Keep your head up.


Madonna EcologicoMadonna Ecologicojust another dipstick 50+ year old I guess ... 'the cause'? 'stay with the cause'? what cause would that be exactly? must have something to do with menopause ... the text itself has something, a quality ... anyway, she ain't no prophet, you figgure it out ...

A-and the Sunday magazine of Jornal do Brasil, o Ecologico, is telling me that Madonna is Green. Right ... green like a good Stilton cheese? well, I guess ... deep thoughts ...

Bob said somewhere:

Mister Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake
I'm not that eager to make a mistake.




Stones in Brasil - Like a Rolling Stone.

Bob Dylan - It Ain't Me Babe 1975.
Bob Dylan - Oh, Sister.

... and is our purpose not the same on this earth
to love and follow His direction ...


long way round ...

Is Amazonia the Amazon forest? I'm not sure what the reference is.

What a beautiful prayer . Would be a good thing to say it every day to keep in our consciousness the things to strive for that bring us peace and progress. Thanks.
