A people flood. So were the last days at the Halleluya Arena, which welcomed people from Brazil and around the world in a true feast of faith. Young, adult, elderly people. All gathered around an altar of mercy, love and much joy.
In the moments of adoration, the thousands of voices silenced and contemplated the tenderness of Jesus Christ incarnate, concrete, alive in the Eucharist. Here the sea of people was filled even more with a Love that never passes – the true meaning of the party that never ends.
The Halleluya Festival is a true manifestation of the generosity of a God who loves his people and wants to communicate this mercy in a wide, explicit, palpable way. Each place in the Arena is a space that leads people to find meaning and peace through divine sonship. It is impossible not to leave the place without a heart full of tenderness and hope for a new beginning.
In the Mercy Space were present 27 priests who confessed 782 people and accompained 1052 people.
Music and more
On stage, during the five days, there were also artists who express the love they once received through art – seeing that before it reaches the mind, it touches the heart first. Above this, 5 talks, attractions, sports, kids’ space and games.
Over the five days of the Festival, thousands of volunteers offered their time to work in the various sectors of the event, which could only happen with the sacrifice of missionaries who generously opened their hearts to service, a free gift that brings mercy from God to men.
Also this year, there’s the collaboration with the Center of Hematology and Hemotherapy of Ceará (Hemoce) which had the goal of reaching 1022 blood donations, 2018 result. This was successfully achieved: 12 marrow donations and 292 blood bags.
The non-perishable food reached 930 kg donation.
Halleluya is not a simple festival, but an experience
Restart. More than just an event: Halleluya is the milestone of a fresh start for men. It is a new chance. The Festival exist to show that there is hope in me and in you – the lives of every son and daughter of God have a right be: the eternity that awaits them.
May the end of this Peace event remind you of the depth of the ocean of mercy in your life. The times you thought you couldn’t make it, but you did it. Outperformed. Loved it again. Believe again.
Let’s go, wake up!
On August 3rd and 4th, Life in the Spirit Seminar will be held in the Shalom Community Houses in Fortaleza. The party never ends!
