Hi everyone! Paloma here! Welcome to our Portuguese Weekly Words, Holiday edition! So the holiday for today is Our Lady of Aparecida.

O dia de Nossa Senhora Aparecida é em 12 de outubro. "Our Lady Aparecida day is on October 12th."
2. Rio Paraíba "Paraiba River"

O rio Paraíba foi onde se encontrou a imagem de Nossa Senhora. "The Paraiba river is where they found the image of Our Lady."
3. catolicismo "catholicism"
Since Brazil is a Catholic country, on October 12 people go to Aparecida city to pay respect and thank and ask for favors to Our Lady Aparecida.
O catolicismo é muito forte no Brasil. "The catholicism is very strong in Brazil."

Milhares de devotos vão à basílica de Nossa Senhora. "Thousands of devotes go to Our Lady basilica."

Hi William,

Thank you for posting.

Just a minor issue:

We say "Nossa Senhora Aparecida" for "Our Lady Aparecida".

Feel free to let us know if you have any questions.
