“The musical sector, which included the choir, instrument players, etc., must carry out through music a work of transmutation, not only personal but also of the environment”. Trigueirinho.
The last program of Music for the Healing and Upliftment of Humanity was called “To be born again from love”. It was an extension of “Universal Love”, the topic of the previous edition, and part of a trilogy (Cosmogony, Mirrors, Universal Love – To be born again from love).
This final night had a considerable presence of the public, the greatest presence that the event has had throughout the year, according to comments of the production team. The event took place last December in the hall of F2, an area of the Community-of-Light of Figueira. It had the musical direction of Friar Benedetto, from Grace Mercy Order, together with a technical and musical team that included guests, resident and permanent members of the Community-of-Light and volunteers.

“So, we will have compositions that will help us internalize, go within and experience…”. Trigueirinho

Wenda Isique, 34, from Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil, visiting Carmo da Cachoeira, was “at last” able to watch in person a meeting of Music for the Healing and Upliftment of Humanity. “One day a companion at the university where I work, whose parents live in Carmo, gave me a link for the Program. On this day, for personal problems, I did not feel very well, and I automatically opened it. It was magical, I felt raptured by the projected images, I was somewhere else, but I immediately knew that I would someday be there. At last, I am here, I was able to come. These voices, these lyrics, all in all, I felt the need to come and as I was here I felt part of everything, whenever I watch it on the internet, my life changes, I am serious. Now I cannot even tell, but thank you all the same to all artists for such a deep work”.
The soprano Erica Moreira, from Campinas, a music teacher and participant in the event, commented the following: “This is my first time here in Figueira, although I knew the work by Trigueirinho, through a study group that we have about h
Is books and lectures. However, my very first time here was for this edition of Music for the Healing and Upliftment of Humanity. Here I lived a purpose that I had never had: to sing to serve God”.
Gabriela de Paula Arruda, actress, presenter of the event by means of the allegorical book of Wisdom, manifested: “I can only say ‘thank you’, for having been able to share with all these people. Each one gives their best, overcoming challenges month by month. Everyone surrender with great love. This for me is an inspiration, thank you for the opportunity of allowing me to offer a little for this work”.
Mara Fernandez, a permanent member of the Community-of-Light of Figueira, scenographic director of the event, works with Friar Renatto, of Grace Mercy Order, who is the artistic director, besides a team of approximately ten people. She shares: “I came to work in Music for the Healing and Upliftment of Humanity collaborating, then my consciousness began to anchor this task, I deepened a lot in my inner being, so much so that I am sure the program awakened my spirit. It was an intense and important process”.
Without a doubt 2019 will present new challenges and opportunities for the dissemination of this program. For the time being, the live presentations will be suspended during January and February. In these months, there will only be retransmissions. A new call waits for us then.
