Para nosotros los humanos, pensamos que Dios no nos escucha, dudamos de su poder en realizar infinidades de milagros en nuestras vidas, algunas de ellas ni las percibimos; nos desesperamos por no tener una respuesta en medio de nuestra condición de pecado o por otra circunstancia adversa que azota nuestro ser, sin embargo, es ahí donde nuestro Jesús, quien experimento el dolor, la angustia humana y venció, es Él quien está trabajando para que Tú y yo, tengamos la paz que solo viene de Él y recibamos la solución, la respuesta que esperamos ♥
No hay nadie quién no esté pasando por momentos difíciles, pero recordemos Dios nunca se va de nuestro lado, nos acompaña y nos muestra conforme a su Divina y Santa Voluntad el camino, la salida, nos da Esperanza para seguir adelante.🙌🌌☪ No nos desesperemos, Dios está obrando a nuestro Favor 🙏❤
Christ the Redeemer (Portuguese: Cristo Redentor) is an Art Deco statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, created by French sculptor Paul Landowski and built by the Brazilian engineer Heitor da Silva Costa, in collaboration with the French engineer Albert Caquot. It is 30 metres (98 ft) tall, not including its 8-metre (26 ft) pedestal, and its arms stretch 28 metres (92 ft) wide.
The statue weighs 635 metric tons (625 long, 700 short tons), and is located at the peak of the 700-metre (2,300 ft) Corcovadomountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city of Rio. As a symbol of Brazilian Christianity, the statue has become an icon for Rio de Janeiro and Brazil. It is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone, and was constructed between 1922 and 1931.
The statue of Christ the Redeemer with open arms, a symbol of peace, was chosen. Local engineer Heitor da Silva Costa designed the statue; it was sculpted by Polish-French sculptor Paul Landowski. Gheorghe Leonida contributed by portraying Jesus Christ’s face on the statue, which made him famous.
A group of engineers and technicians studied Landowski’s submissions and the decision was made to build the structure out of reinforced concrete (designed by Albert Caquot) instead of steel, more suitable for the cross-shaped statue. The outer layers are soapstone, chosen for its enduring qualities and ease of use. Construction took nine years, from 1922 to 1931 and cost the equivalent of US$250,000 ($3,300,000 in 2015). The monument was opened on October 12, 1931.During the opening ceremony, the statue was lit by a battery of floodlights turned on remotely by shortwave radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi, stationed 5,700 miles (9,200 km) away in Rome.(x)
