Brothers and sisters: Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts. But I shall show you a still more excellent way. If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains; but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.


Porque agora vemos por espelho em enigma, mas então veremos face a face; agora conheço em parte, mas então conhecerei como também sou conhecido. Agora, pois, permanecem a fé, a esperança e o amor, estes três; mas o maior destes é o Amor.


Marco: I, Marco, take you, Sofia, to be my wife. I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will honor you all the days of my life.

Sofia: Eu, Sofia, recebo-te por meu marido a ti, Marco, e prometo ser-te fiel, amar-te e respeitar-te, na alegria e na tristeza, na saúde e na doença, todos os dias da nossa vida.

Pr: Lord, bless these rings, which we bless in your name. Grant that those who wear them may always have a deep faith in each other. May they do your will and always live together in peace, good will, and love. Through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.


74


Sofia, take this ring as a sign of my love and fidelity. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Marco, recebe esta aliança como sinal do meu amor e da minha fidelidade. Em nome do Pai, do Filho e do Espírito Santo.

I hope you had a good t ri p and are all happy and com for table at you r hot e l . As you p robably know, my dau ghter Sofia and Marco are cousi ns, Nuno ‘ s father and my father were brothe rs. U nfor t unat e ly his father died when Nu no was ver y young. We we re al l at that tim e living in Mozam biqu e, many ye ars ago. It i s not e asy for me and my wife to s ee Sofia m oving to a d i f fe re nt cont i nent, ver y far away from the place s he was bor n. Al so for her, s he will need adapt to her new f ut ure l i fe , make new friends , and get u s ed to a com p l e t e ly ne w way of living. It has be e n a t oug h decis ion for her to take, it im plies many change s i n her life as we all can im agine.

SOFIA MARCO a love w ith o ut mea sure


De nós só é pedido, cegamente, Estar na luz das coisas vivas na sua infinita finitude. E uma a uma, as imagens com sua frescura sem idade, vão fazendo a prumo e em densidade o seu espaço. E assim, Atónitos neste doce movimento todo o trabalho não é mais que “a penumbra estremecida na brisa de uma ciência branca.”

Madalena Machado

Vocation in space and time made both from want and from excess: the incandescence of being the splendour of the Real the Instant it’s pure nothingness. Of us is only asked, blindly To be in the light of living things In their infinite finitude. And one by one, images with ageless freshness in height and density make their space.

Romería de píxeles Oficio en el espacio y en el tiempo hecho tanto en privación como en exceso: la incandescencia del ser la fulgurancia del Real El Instante su puro nada. De nosotros solo nos pide, a ciegas Estar en la luz de las cosas vivas en su infinita finitud. Y una por una, las imágenes con su frescura sin edad, van haciendo a plomo y en densidad su espacio.

And thus, Astonished by such soft motion our work is no more than “startled shadows in the breeze of a white science.”

Y así, Atónitos En este dulce movimiento todo el trabajo no es más que “la penumbra estremecida en la brisa de una ciencia blanca.”
