Anastácia de boca fechada

Imagem da escrava Anastácia na igreja do Rosário do Pretos....

A mordaça é prova viva de que Anastácia resistiu.....

Anastacia was a slave woman who belonged to a brutal master and who suffered as greatly as a martyr. To those who prayed in this altar she is a saint who grants cures, graces, and miracles. The picture surrounded by flowers and votive offerings shows her wearing an iron mask and iron collar. Her master made her wore that because of her rebelliousness and inability to tolerate "the imposition of a prejudiced society" in this sense she resisted! Long live Anastacia! Viva Anastacia.....
