More on Rio

September 8, 2008

In the early 80s the Diocese of North Carolina entered into a companion relationship with the Diocese of Belize. Much was made of the Central American refugees that were flooding the country and the needs of the Church. I was greatly amused by the irony that the shop in the lobby of the hotel where we were meeting had a full window display of a magazine (now defunct) called Connoisseur. On the cover was an article about the beautiful beaches of Belize and the wonders of snorkeling in that country.

In the divine comedy or economy of God, my laughter has come back to haunt me. Yesterday’s travel section of the New York Times had an article on the restaurants in an up and coming area of Rio called St. Teresa.

Of course, this is the area in which the Cathedral is found.
