In the afternoon we had an artistic part of the Festival of Mercy with songs, inculturation and dances. Then a talk from Cardinal Orani Joao Tempesta of archdiocese of Sao Sebastaio do Rio de Janeiro, Divine Mercy chaplet led by Polish Pallotine missionary Fr. Mariusz Mączka from Medellin, Colombia and an Eucharistic Adoration led by the Papal Nuncio in Colombia, Archbishop Ettore Ballestrero.
Finally, in the evening there was a special meeting of Cardinals, Bishops, continental and national coordinators. As I wrote in the previous post, I had an honor to give a short presentation on Divine Mercy in Tanzania.
Here are some photos I took on that day to show you the ambiance and the festive nature of the day.
