Day Seventeen: Brazilian Hands

Last summer, I visited some Anglican friends in the diocese of Rio de Janiero in Brazil. One evening, we went with the bishop to a street Eucharist. While I was there, in anticipation of this project, I took pictures of this woman and her daughter accepting Eucharist. I hate to admit this, but I didn't write down her name. I remember what she said, though. "what important things do you do with your hands?" I asked. "I take care of my daughter," she replied, "I raise her to follow Christ."
