The parish priest of Tavira, Father Miguel Neto, asked citizens for “responsibility” at this time of pandemic, reminding them of the serious epidemiological situation in the municipality.
“At this moment, Tavira faces a serious situation regarding the Covid-19 disease, caused by the SARS CoV-2 virus. We think that we all behave appropriately and carefully, but if we did, we would not be suffering and living with such sad numbers. This shows that our behavior has an influence on the lives of others, on social peace, on the way we live in society. The obligation of the Christian is not his individual experience of Faith, but his community experience, translated into concrete acts in favor of others and that implies a concern for the common good, for peace, for true peace “, reflects Father Miguel Neto.
