So many people cry with rage when they reach the limit.

Often, we are so angry about the situations of the day, we use the expression: “I reached my limit, I can’t take it anymore!”. So many people cry with rage when they’re in this peak of stress; others, cry out without thinking. But later repent. Anyway, we have a limit and it is normal for us to reach it!

But how do we react? Crying or screaming will solve what? I tell you something that works for me: when I’m at my limit, if I can’t solve the situation at the time, I go to the Chapel, cool down, relax a little and then seek to resolve the situation.

Several unresolved situations generate much greater stress. Never handle anything hot; on the contrary, seek always the best way to solve the problem without hurting people.

May the Lord God teach you to deal with the hardships of life.

God bless you.
Your brother, Eto

We ourselves benefit by our allegiance to God

In my life I see the faithfulness of God toward me, from small to large things.
I’m not saying this only with regard to material goods, but to spiritual as well.

So many times when I’m tired, God finds me and gives me a chance to rest; When I’m discouraged, I get letters from our associates talking about Canção Nova is their lives; and when I’m sad, God is always sending someone to cheer me up.

Brothers,experience God’s care every day, but one thing is certain, God sees my struggle for allegiance. Every day I wake at  4:30AM to pray, I go to Mass every day, I study the word and seek to be with him every day.
Soon, I realize in these affectionate gestures of God that He acknowledges that I struggle to be faithful and with that, He comes to my rescue.

Brothers, I wish you to live this beautiful experience of God’s care, but first of all, let us be faithful and God,who is true, we will honor his infinite faithfulness.

A man of faith, builds bridges

Compreendaqualéodeverdaesposa

I want to share with you a story that taught me a lot. There were two brothers, each with a farm they inherited, which was divided by a river. The brothers became enemies for a long time. Soon, one of them hired a carpenter and asked him to build a fence too high, so he could not see his brother’s farm.

The carpenter, in turn, built a bridge that connected one farmto the other. The brother really irritated with the bridge, sent the carpenter away. Then the two brothers met on this bridge and lived a profound reconciliation.

They called the carpenter back to work with them, because he had done a very huge thing for both. But he replied: I cannot, because I still have many bridges to build in this world.

What you learn from this story is that I need to be a man of faith. I work for God and cannot build fences, only bridges. I invite you to build many bridges today.

God will be very happy with our service. We are responsible for our attitudes, words, actions, and everything we do. So, let us be builders of bridges.

Your brother,

Often Times I complain about the world. But what I am doing to change it?

I’ve been watching TV these days, and something came to me:  how much the world needs God. It’s unanimous: the world is lost. But the following question entered into my heart: What am I doing to save him?

The world is not lost, there are still good people who make a difference, just by giving more emphasis to the good than the bad. We need to pray and develop the attitudes of Christians in society. We don’t have to be afraid, God is on our side.

The song arose in my heart: “you have to trust me. You’re not missing anything in believing. I follow by your side, I’m your God, a God in love “. (Eugenio Jorge)

We need to disseminate throughout the world the love of God, the loving God who loves us, who heals the wounds of our pain. Who nurtures us. The world needs the love of God, and we who are this channel of love should be the first to live His love

My brothers and sisters, I put an assignment for next week: make a gesture of Christian love to your neighbor. And let’s spread the good news.

God bless you,

Your brother,

To hear the voice of God is necessary to break with the old man

God speaks to us day and night, but when corrupted, we are blind and deaf to his voice. And this happens because of pride, greed, vanity and sin in us.

The Lord draws us all away from was acquired without the sweat of our face, because those things rot our soul. When sin entered in history, God established a law: eat the bread through the sweat of your brow. Otherwise, the bread has no dignity. “Water gives, water takes. All what we sow, we reap. “

We have to get rid of the old man, nature bad, immorality and deceit while there is time. We must lead a pure life, even in the midst of this world of darkness. St. Paul tells the Ephesians that Christians have to shine in this world as “lights in the middle of darkness”, because, as Jesus said, the Christian is “the light of the world“. But what if the darkness of this world puts out the light of the Christian? It will be where Jesus said there would be “weeping and gnashing of teeth”.

We must take care of our soul to be good people, to our interior reflect our exterior

We have many concerns in the course of life and some of them are: what my son is going to be when he grows up? How do I get a better job? How much weight should I lose? When will I get married? … Anyway, there are so many concerns with the outer life, we don’t have time to figure out what to do with our soul.

Have you ever wondered: am I forgiving? I wonder if I’m talking about really bad people? Am I being a channel of God channel in others’ lives? Am I in love?

Dear reader, taking care of so much of our appearance, we can neglect our salvation. We forget to be good, to have a good heart, to take care to be good people, to reflect on the interior of our outer selves. Should we be concerned with our health, for our family, but we should care most for our soul, because the body perishes, but the soul is eternal.

Think about it.

Your brother,
ETO
