Posted December 23rd, 2016 by Suzy

Jose Maria Ea de Queiroz (1845-1900) is recognized like the greater Portuguese novelist. The author of Illustrious A House of Ramires, mordacious critic of the society of his time, wrote one of the most stirring pages of world-wide Literature. Nevertheless, few understood their political message. In a while of as much materialism, in that the Human being, choked by the violence, it begins to intensely look for in the Divine Shelter the solution his individual and collective desperations, to only it can do him well, while patiently it hopes by the earthly solutions, the memory of the plea of a boy taken care of by one of the majors symbols of Solidarity of which the news is had: In that time Jesus not yet had left Galilea, of the margins of the lake of Genesaret; but the new one of Its miracles already had arrived at Siquem, rich city, between vineyards, in the country of Samaria. Near Siquem, in a hut, an unfortunate widow between all lived, that an ill son with fever had. The miserable floor was not whitewashed, either there was in him no a camp bed. In the red mud lamp the oil had been dried.

The grain lacked in the coffer, the sleeping noise of the domestic mill had stopped, and this was in Israel the cruel evidence of infinite misery. The poor mother, sitting in a corner, cried. And, made kneel, covered with rags, pale and shaking, boy asked him, with voice weak as sigh, that went to call that Rabbi of Galilea of that heard speak next to the well of Jac, that it loved the children, that nourished the human multitudes and cured all the evils with the caress of Its hands. And the mother said to him, crying: How love you, son mine, who I leave and is going to look for you the Rabbi of Galilea? Obed is rich and has servants, saw I them happen, and in vain they looked for Jesus by small villages and cities, from Corazim to the country of Moab.
