The theme of religious intolerance should not be left out of the spiritist agenda

This is the proposal of columnist Marcus Vinicius de Azevedo Braga in the special entitled We need to talk about religious intolerance, one of the highlights of this edition. In the article, he lists some cases of prejudice and intolerance against temples and people linked to religious groups, generally belonging to religions of African origin, a fact that, according to him, should feature prominently on the agenda of the spiritist movement.

Another highlight is the interview given to us by veterinarian and retired professor Raul Franzolin, from Pirassununga (SP). Managing editor of GEAE – Group of Advanced Spiritist Studies, the first spiritist group to use the Internet, founded on 10/15/1992, he talks to us in the interview, among other topics, about his book Living and Learning to Live – A Vision spiritual life.

In the text Amélia Rodrigues, the writer who praised events experienced by Jesus, journalist Rita Cirne focuses on the trajectory, life and work of the author of the well-known Poem of Gratitude, with which speaker Divaldo Franco usually ends his appreciated and well-attended conferences. The article, originally published in Correio Fraterno, in São Bernardo do Campo (SP), is one of the highlights of this issue.
