Franciscans from five convents in northeastern Brazil have released a video dancing to a typical Brazilian rhythm known as the frevo with one request: “Fique em Casa” (Stay Home).
“I was thinking of a way to make people aware. I thought of creating something that would be joyful, festive, because as Franciscans (we) have the characteristic of the joy that is proper to Franciscan life,” Franciscan Brother Flavio Lorrane Clementino de Almeida told Catholic News Service.
“It needed to be something different from what the media was showing. I wanted to convey that, despite the tense moment, we need to be calm,” he said.
