BRAZIL CATHOLICS OPPOSE CARNIVAL WITH SPIRITUAL RETREATS

    RIO DE JANEIRO, 24 (NE) As an answer to excesses and dissoluteness encouraged by Rio de Janeiro's infamous carnival, the Archdiocese of Rio has organized several activities for Brazilian Catholics to attend during that event. Among them, the archdiocese has organized a spiritual retreat to last four days. As it was informed, any faithful may attend the activities and celebrations of the retreat, to be held in a local stadium with capacity for 25.000 people.

    From 8 in the morning to six in the afternoon, several priests will be offering confessions. A full program of conferences, celebrations and moments of prayer will also take place. Meditation will reflect about the theme "Celebrate Christ". The Archdiocese is encouraging as well other spiritual retreats among local parishes and ecclesial associations.

    Cardinal Eugenio de Araujo Sales, Archbishop of Rio, called faithful in the Brazilian archdiocese to hold celebrations to repair for offenses committed against God during the carnival. The Cardinal specially asked Catholics to organize rosaries, meditations and moments of Eucharist adoration.
