20th May

I was reading an article in The Guardian by Rosie Dawson, about religion in Brazilian football.

It was about the Neo-Pentecostalists, a religion brought to Brazil from America in the early 20th century. It’s spunky Christianity, with faith healings and exorcisms and stuff.

The movement has been on the rise for some time.

In the early days its followers denounced football, calling it ‘The Devil’s Egg’, but now they like it.
