On the sign:
Esto centro histórico de Lisboa, onde hoje fraternalmente nos abraçamos. foi no passado palco de violencias intoleraveis contra o povo hebreu. Nem devemos esquecer, neste lugar, a, triste sorte dos cristãos novos as pressões para se converterem, os/motins, as suspeitas, as delações. os processos temiveis de Inquisição.

Como comunidade maioritaria nesta cidade, ha perto de mil anos, a Igreja Católica reconhece profundamente manchada a sua memoria por esses gestos e palavras. tantas vezes praticados em seu nome.

indignos da pessoa humana e do Evangelho que ela anuncia.

Oceanos de Paz, 26 de Setembro de 2000

Jose, Patriarca de Lisboa

The text in the image above indicates the decision of the Vatican Council against discrimination (approximately):
Em atitude de conversão pessoal e comunitaria, quero retorat hoje solehemente perante Deus e diante de todos va
a advertència do Concillo Vaticand II
A Igreja Católiça «reprova como contrária ao espirito de Criste qualquer descriminação ou qualquer perseguição
faita por questoes de raça. ou de cor, de condição de vida ou de religiáo
E.. roga ardentemente aos (seus fieis) que ...
façam quanto deles depende para estarem em paz com todos.(of Rom 12, 18)
de modo que sejam verdadeiramente
filhos do Pai que está nos Ceus (cf. Mt 5.45)» (Nostra Aetate 5)

In an attitude of personal and community conversion, I want to speak solemnly today before God and before all of you.
the warning of the Second Vatican Council
The Catholic Church "reproaches as contrary to the spirit of Christ any discrimination or any persecution
done for reasons of race. or color, condition of life or religion
And... earnestly begs those (his faithful) to...
do what it depends on you to be at peace with everyone.(of Rom 12, 18)
so that they are truly
children of the Father who is in Heaven (cf. Mt 5.45)» (Nostra Aetate 5)

Translation of the text on the sign:
This historic center of Lisbon, where today we fraternally embrace each other. it was in the past the scene of intolerable violence against the Hebrew people. Nor must we forget, in this place, the sad fate of new Christians, the pressure to convert, the riots, the suspicions, the betrayals. the fearsome processes of the Inquisition.

As the majority community in this city, for close to a thousand years, the Catholic Church recognizes that its memory is deeply stained by these gestures and words. so many times practiced in his name.

unworthy of the human person and the Gospel he proclaims.

Oceans of Peace, September 26, 2000

Joseph, Patriarch of Lisbon
