“I LEFT THE SERVICE SPIRITUALLY FULLER”



After the event, Rebelo talked a few minutes with Sara Narciso, one of the presenters of the evangelical programs of the Portuguese television RTP2.



“I feel very grateful for this opportunity of sharing this important moment, which is so meaningful for you and, therefore, for us too”



The President said that he “left the ceremony spiritually fuller than when I entered here, because of this moment of fellowship, fraternity, solidarity, and therefore of community. We all are part of a community. I left richer than before”.





The Christmas service will be broadcast on January 9.
