Brazil’s main commercial center, Sao Paulo, came to a standstill on Thursday, when it became the site of the biggest annual Christian movement in the nation. The May 26th ‘March for Jesus’ brought together over two million people, who marched along a pre-planned, one-mile route beginning at 10 a.m.
They started near the University of Sao Paulo’s school of Medicine and walked to the modern, skyscraper-lined Avenida Paulista, stopping where the crowd would gather for the closing program.
“The purpose of this march, and of all the other ones we have organised over the years, is to conquer Brazil for Jesus Christ,” said Camila Nascimento, a spokeswoman for the evangelical Reborn in Christ Church, the main organiser of the event.
