The Saturday was sunny and hot around 10 a.m., at the beginning of the March, on the boardwalk of Sao Francisco, where it is possible to see the statue of Christ, the Redeemer, the Gavea Stone and the Sugar Loaf, in Rio de Janeiro.
Wearing t-shirts of the Campaign for Peace and holding white balloons, members of the Network-of-Light of Rio from several cities were present, including most children and brothers and sisters of the Community of the Nova Terra, who came from Teresopolis especially for the event.
During the route, the group sang canticles, offered prayers and distributed flyers with information about the Campaign for Peace and the Prayer for the Children. White balloons and arm ribbons written ‘Peace in the World’ were also distributed.
‘They were moments filled with fraternity, faith, love, and enthusiasm of the children of Mary!’, said Pama, the coordinator of the Community of the Nova Terra.
