Flávia Correia: A História do Cristo Redentor

O Cristo Redentor está em festa, pois, completa 90 anos em 12 de outubro deste ano. E vale ressaltar que poucas pessoas sabem da verdadeira história do monumento. E digo mais, ele é muito além que um monumento, é um Santuário Católico, que pertence à Arquidiocese de São Sebastião do Rio de Janeiro.

Vamos então conhecer a história: 

Em 1926, a Arquidiocese do Rio de Janeiro iniciou a construção do Cristo Redentor, em terreno próprio, no Alto do Corcovado, recebido através de uma carta de aforamento e, posteriormente, cessão de uso da União.

Na época da construção, a Arquidiocese promoveu um concurso para escolha do projeto do monumento e contratou o engenheiro Heitor da Silva Costa, autor do projeto vencedor.

Através de escritura pública, todos os direitos patrimoniais de autor foram cedidos à Arquidiocese do Rio de Janeiro, inclusive de seu colaborador, o estatuísta francês Paul Landowsky, que modelou a maquete do projeto.

O monumento, que é um símbolo do Cristianismo, foi inaugurado no dia 12 de outubro de 1931, dia de Nossa Senhora de Aparecida, padroeira do Brasil, a quem foi dedicada a capela localizada embaixo da estátua. Foram 5 anos de obras desse ícone mundialmente conhecido. 

O arquiteto Heitor Levy era o encarregado geral da construção e Pedro Fernandes Viana era o engenheiro fiscal.

Vale ressaltar que todo o custo para a construção do monumento se deu através de uma grande campanha de doação que a própria Arquidiocese realizou entre católicos de todo Brasil na época. Nenhum recurso público foi utilizado na construção.

Fatos curiosos sobre a construção: 

1-O monumento em concreto é todo revestido por pequenos triângulos de pedra sabão, trazidos da cidade de Carandaí, Minas Gerais.  As pedras foram coladas uma a uma em largas faixas de pano por mulheres voluntárias, para depois serem aplicadas à imagem pelos operários. No verso das pedras estão escritos nomes de familiares dessas mulheres e entes queridos.  

2- As mãos do  Cristo são mãos femininas. Quem serviu de modelo para as mãos do Cristo foi uma mulher, Margarida Lopes de Almeida.

3- O arquiteto Heitor Levy  que era de credo judaíco,converteu-se ao catolicismo, e deixou uma carta num cilindro de vidro, na parte interna do coração da imagem, como prova de fé e devoção.

Santuário Cristo Redentor: De braços abertos ao mundo inteiro!

Em 2006, na ocasião do 75° aniversário de inauguração do monumento, o Cardeal Eusébio Oscar Scheidt decidiu criar, através de decreto, o Santuário Cristo Redentor, estabelecendo o cume do Monte Corcovado definitivamente como um lugar sagrado de peregrinação e celebrações culturais, como missas, batizados e casamentos.

O monumento já recebeu algumas figuras ilustres como o Princípe Charles e a Princesa Diana, Barak Obama, Madonna, Bono Vox e Papa João Paulo II, que na ocasião disse: “ Se Deus é brasileiro, o Papa é carioca”.

O Santuário Cristo Redentor também trabalha na área social, onde assiste algumas instituições organizando mutirões de serviços sociais itinerantes, voltados para o atendimento da população carente de diversas regiões da cidade do Rio de Janeiro.

Em parceria com instituições públicas e privadas, profissionais especializados disponibilizam serviços de caráter preventivo, nas áreas de saúde, educação, assistência social, cidadania e meio ambiente, visando a melhoria da qualidade de vida daqueles a quem o trabalho é direcionado.

Um viva ao nosso Cristo Redentor que está sempre de braços abertos a nos abençoar!
