História do Santuário Nacional de Cristo Rei

 

A ideia da construção do Monumento a Cristo Rei surge em 1934, aquando de uma visita ao Brasil do então Cardeal Patriarca de Lisboa, D. Manuel Gonçalves Cerejeira. Ao passar pelo Rio de Janeiro, viu a imponente imagem de Cristo Redentor do Corcovado e logo no seu coração nasceu o desejo de construir semelhante obra em frente a Lisboa. Em 1936, a ideia de construir o Monumento a Cristo Rei foi transmitida ao “Apostolado de Oração”, que a acolheu entusiasticamente. Para ser Nacional, o Monumento precisava de aprovação e cooperação de todos os Bispos Portugueses. Tal sensibilização aos Bispos é conseguida, sendo proclamada oficialmente na Pastoral Coletiva da Quaresma de 1937.

A 18 de Dezembro de 1949 é solenemente lançada a 1ª Pedra do Monumento a Cristo Rei. Dois anos depois, iniciam-se os trabalhos das fundações e finalmente em 1952, a empresa Obras Públicas e Cimento Armado (OPCA) começa a construção dos alicerces. A obra foi realizada através de um sistema de cofragem especial, ou seja, os chamados moldes viajantes, em que o andaime era a própria estrutura, recebendo o betão, nos quais se via crescer o pedestal da imagem de Cristo Rei, camada após camada.

A 17 de Maio de 1959 (Dia de Pentecostes) perante a imagem de Nossa Senhora de Fátima, com a participação de todo o Episcopado Português, os Cardeais do Rio de Janeiro e de Lourenço Marques (Maputo), autoridades civis e de 300 mil pessoas, inaugurou-se o Monumento.

Importa referir que a imagem de Cristo Rei é da autoria de Mestre Francisco Franco e a imagem de Nossa Senhora da Paz, que se encontra na Capela do Monumento, é do Mestre Leopoldo de Almeida, sendo que o projeto tem como autores o arquiteto António Lino e o Engenheiro D. Francisco de Mello e Castro.

History of the National Shrine of Christ the King

 

The idea to build the Monument to Christ-King comes up in 1934, when the late Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon, His Eminence Manuel Gonçalves Cerejeira, is visiting Brazil. Traveling through Rio de Janeiro, he comes upon the impressing site of the Statue of Christ the Redeemer in Corcovado and immediately is born in his heart the desire to build something similar in front of Lisbon. So, in 1936, the idea to build the Monument to Christ-King was made known to the Apostolate of Prayer, which welcomed it with enthusiasm. In order to be National, the Monument needed the approval and cooperation of all the Portuguese Bishops, which is finally obtained and officially divulged in the Bishops’ Joint Pastoral Letter for Lent of 1937.

On December 18, 1949, the First Stone of the Monument is solemnly placed in the ground. Two years later the foundation work begins. Finally, in 1952, the firm Obras Públicas e Cimento Armado (OPCA) begins putting in the foundation. The work was done by means of a special system of sheathing, that is, the so-called traveling forms, in which the scaffold and the structure were the same thing in which the concrete was being poured. The pedestal of the Statue of Christ-King was thus growing layer upon layer.

The Monument was inaugurated on May 17, 1959 (Pentecost Sunday) before a statue of Our Lady of Fatima and in the presence of all the Portuguese Bishops, the Cardinals of Rio de Janeiro and of Lourenço Marques (now Maputo), several civil authorities and about 300,000 people.

It is worth mentioning that the statue of Christ-King was conceived by Master Francisco Franco; that of Our Lady of Peace, found in the Monument’s Chapel, was authored by Master Leopoldo de Almeida; the architectonic project itself belongs to Architect António Lino and Engineer Dom Francisco de Mello e Castro.
