500 Anos

19 de Abril de 1506 – 19 de Abril de 2006

Depois do que foi dito, nada melhor do que lembrar estas palavras para traduzir alguns silêncios que se tornam ensurdecedores:

«What the world expects of Christians is that Christians should speak out loud and clear, and that they should voice their condemnation in such a way that never a doubt, never the slightest doubt, could rise in the heart of the simplest man. That they should get away from abstraction and confront the blood-stained face history has taken on today. The grouping we need is a grouping of men resolved to speak out clearly and to pay up personally. When a Spanish bishop blesses political executions, he ceases to be a Christian or even a man; he is a dog just like the one who, backed by an ideology, orders that execution without doing the dirty work himself. We are still waiting, and I am waiting, for a grouping of all those who refuse to be dogs and are resolved to pay the price that must be paid so that men can be something more than a dog.»
Albert Camus, discurso proferido num mosteiro dominicano, 1948
