Compilation of texts written by Delmira Maçãs, benefactor of the Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa, published in Stella, a religious magazine with which she maintained regular collaboration. In this volume of the collection entitled Miscelânea, Delmira Maçãs shares, in a lively, rich and insightful record, considerations about a number of religious and profane episodes, with special emphasis on pilgrimages, processions and moments of worship at the Sanctuary of Fátima. The author also describes pictures of the life of the Little Shepherds and their beatification. In this narrative path, the author shares with the reader her unique look at Portugal at the time, in an unmistakably critical and sagacious record. These writings reveal Delmira Maçãs, a complex and contradictory personality who found her most stimulating confidant in the white of the pages. 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.
