Compilation of autobiographical writings and religious reflection by Delmira Maçãs, benefactor of the Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa, vivid accounts written in the first person. In this third volume of the collection entitled Biographical Notes – Steps to Death, Delmira Maçãs deposits the doubts and anxieties born of the deep religious devotion that served as a compass for her existence, confidences that confirm the solid faith that she nourished throughout her life. “What does it matter that I'm an ice crystal? What does it matter if You come to illuminate it with Your radiant light? […] Everything depends on the sun on the ice. Everything depends on you in me”, summarizes the author. These writings reveal Delmira Maçãs, a complex and contradictory personality who found her most stimulating confidant in the white of the pages. It was on paper that she meticulously deposited the daily record of life, as well as the anguish felt from dawn to the sunset of existence, deep reflection dispersed in countless texts that she methodically kept throughout her life. Delmira Maçãs' books were published by Santa Casa in 2009, in fulfillment of the testamentary mandate stipulated by the benefactor to the Misericórdia de Lisboa, an institution she chose as her heir: the publication of her personal writings, of an autobiographical nature, but also of a religious and literary. It is a set of 16 volumes, organized into three collections: Biographical Notes – Steps to Death, Dialogue with the Gospels and Miscellaneous.
