First Mass said in Brazil: A.D. 1500.
Do you know that today is Brazilian Discovery Day by Pedro Alvarez Cabral?And do you know that this "Mass" was our first Mass, offered on April 26 of that same year of 1500?Do you know, or is this a coincidence?Fr. Clecio
It needs a comment: this is the first Mass in Brazil, that you posted in the same day of the discovery's anniversary (Apr 22, 1500). That first mass in the new land was Apr 26, 1500.This picture has been painted by Vitor Meirelles (1832-1903)
Primeira missa celebrada no Brasil, pelo Frei Henrique de Coimbra.
