Item Description: Appleton-Century, 1965. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. 21 x 14 cm. 154 pp. First edition. Religion in Brazil with the text in English. Binding tight; boards clean; dust jacket with very light wear to edges. Black and white photographic section. Quoting the publisher's note: This is the inspiring account of a woman who has become a legend in her own time, a woman who turned her back on a secure life to battle deprivation and disease, a fighter in the tradition of the famous Dr. Tom Dooley. In the community of Bahia in northeast Brazil, Maria Rita Lopes Pontes was born into a comfortable and affectionate family, traditional and secure in its belief in God and country. Even as a youngster she was drawn to the poor and unfortunate and dedicated her life to helping them. She has mastered the quality which Brazilians call jeito, a combination of charm, skill, daring, and shrewdness, which she uses with remarkable effectiveness. Sister Dulce's life is a daily battle against poverty, disease, local corruption, and bureaucratic indifference. She faces these challenges with force and cunning, using her faith as her shield.

Nascida em 26 de maio de 1914, Maria Rita de Sousa Lopes Pontes ficou órfã de mãe aos 7 anos, mas teve uma infância alegre. A partir dos 13 anos, porém, influenciada pela tia Madalena, que lhe recordou de seus deveres como cristã, e impressionada pela condição miserável da população pobre de Salvador, passou a acolher mendigos e doentes em casa, sentindo o despertar do desejo de se dedicar à vida religiosa. Aos 16 anos, ela deixou a casa e a família para entrar para a Congregação das Irmãs Missionárias da Imaculada Conceição da Mãe de Deus. Aos 20 anos, no dia 15 de agosto de 1934, consagrou-se a Deus com os votos religiosos e recebeu o nome de Dulce, em homenagem a sua mãe. Sua vida, desde então, foi de devoção aos pobres. Fundou o o Círculo Operário da Bahia, o hospital Santo Antônio, que abriga crianças e oferece cursos professionalizntes, entre outros. 228 Paginas. 300 gr. Libro. Bookseller Inventory # 1-124171-2

Excerpt: Andrea Bocelli, (Italian pronunciation: ; born 22 September 1958) is an Italian tenor, multi-instrumentalist and classical crossover artist. Born with poor eyesight, he became completely blind at the age of twelve following a football accident. Since winning the Newcomers section of the Sanremo Music Festival in 1994, Bocelli has recorded thirteen solo studio albums, of both pop and classical music, two greatest hits albums, and eight complete operas, selling over 70 million copies worldwide. Thus, he is the biggest-selling solo artist in the history of classical music. In 1998, he was named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People. In 1999, his nomination for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards marked the first, and so far only time a classical artist had been nominated in the category, since Leontyne Price, in 1961. The Prayer, his duet with Celine Dion for the animated film, The Quest for Camelot, won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song and was nominated for an Academy Award in the same category. With the release of his classical album, Sacred Arias, Bocelli captured a listing in the Guinness Book of World Records, as he simultaneously held the top 3 positions on the U.S. classical albums charts. Five of his albums have since reached the Top 10 on the Billboard 200, and a record-setting 7, have topped the classical albums charts, in the United States. With over 5 million units sold worldwide, Sacred Arias became the biggest-selling classical album by a solo artist of all time, and with just under 20 million units sold worldwide, his 1997 pop album, Romanza, became the best-selling album by an Italian artist ever, as well as the best-selling album by a foreign artist in Canada, and a n. 168 pp. Englisch.
