It is time to be compassionate and present. We all need and we can all give a gesture and word of encouragement and equilibrium, and real help to someone that is currently in a more vulnerable state. It’s never too much to remember that we only defend ourselves from evil with the practice of good. May the love of the Mestre guard and comfort us,” stated Tadeo Feijão.
