Brazil’s iconic ‘Christ the Redeemer’ statue in Rio de Janeiro was illuminated with the flags of nations across the world fighting the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic.

The city’s Catholic Bishop, Orani João Tempesta, held Mass at the statue on Wednesday night, urging the faithful of Brazil and the world to pray for those afflicted with the disease and nations struggling to contain it.

The statue of Jesus Christ is Brazil’s most-known landmark. It overlooks the city of Rio de Janeiro on the neighboring Corcovado Mountain.

Brazil may be the first Latin American nation where the disease spreads in force. Conflicting reports have surfaced indicating that the nation’s President, Jair Bolsonaro, may have tested positive for the coronavirus after coming into contact with a cabinet secretary since diagnosed with the disease.

Global coronavirus diagnoses have surpassed 210,000, and deaths from the novel disease may be higher than 10,000. The disease originated in Wuhan, China.

Catholic officials in Italy- the most severely affected nation by the virus in terms of death count- took the almost unprecedented move of suspending regular Sunday masses and religious proceedings at the start of the month.

Gestures in their own right are not going to deter the spread of the contagious virus, but mankind shouldn’t discount the power of God during an unprecedented event some have likened to the most serious in world history since the conclusion of World War II.

Polish Election: National Conservative President Andrzej Duda Leads, Will Face Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger in Runoff

Poland’s President won the first round of the runoff.

Poland’s national conservative President, Andrzej Duda, will face liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski in a runoff election in July. Duda, of the Law and Justice Party, recieved a strong electoral plurality in the first round of elections, taking just under 44%. Trzaskowski recieved 30%, and will be the sole candidate competing against Duda in the runoff elections.

Trzaskowski favors further integrating Poland with the European Union, and has pitched his candidacy to global liberal western elites irritated by euroskeptic and nationalist sentiment in Poland. He’s attended the globalist Bilderberg Conference, and received a scholarship from the Soros Foundation in the early 90’s as a student.

Trzaskowski also led the movement within the country to resettle thousands of Middle Eastern refugees in Poland during the 2015 migrant crisis, a policy that was overturned after Duda took office that year.

Duda has campaigned on reforming the nation’s judiciary, resisting political imperatives from unelected European Union bureaucrats in Brussels(without calling for the Eastern European nation to leave the EU), and opposition to attempts to promote a western-style cultural agenda in Poland. Duda has spoken against the promotion of homosexual ideology in the country, comparing the previous generation’s experiences living under communism to the liberal agenda. “They didn’t fight for this so that a new ideology would appear that is even more destructive,” said Duda in a campaign rally earlier this month.

Various other political parties competed in the first round elections, including other right-wing and conservative parties, who marshaled approximately 9% of the vote combined. If Duda can unite voters inclined to vote for parties to the right of Law and Justice, he stands a strong chance to cruise to an easy victory with more than 50% of the vote.
