Cardinal Eusebio Sheid, Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro, blessed this Wednesday in the Church of the Resurrection in Copacabana the first statue of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, which was brought to the country from Italy.

During the ceremony, 250 food baskets, collected by parishioners, were also for distribution to the poor.  Later after the ceremony a group of actors from the parish of St. Benedict in Santa Cruz performed a dramatization of the birth of Jesus.
